Hazel's County Fair Raises Money for Cancer

YMCA staff undertook the fundraising effort on behalf of a co-worker who was diagnosed with breast cancer last May.

The following was submitted by the Wyckoff Family YMCA:

The YMCA childcare staff coordinated their efforts to host a fundraising event for their friend and co-worker, Elaine Mejury-Mazurek.  Elaine, a YMCA Preschool teacher and local Midland Park resident was diagnosed last May with breast cancer. In January, Elaine was faced with yet another setback, a diagnosis of brain cancer. The good news is that her road to recovery is continuing with surgery and treatment.

As an added attraction to Wyckoff Day, the staff presented “Hazel’s County Fair,” a fun-filled day of games, crafts, food, raffles, and activities for children, including a very special “Duckie Derbie!” All proceeds of the day benefitted the Mejury-Mazurek family through the Wyckoff Y’s Pietro Maugeri Fund. To donate, call the Y at 201-891-2081 or click www.wyckoffymca.org.
