Summer 2014 Update

Thank you!

We wanted to take a moment at the close of the summer to update you on the final numbers from the Fuce 5K.  We can't say thank you enough to all of you who ran/walked/bought a bib as we sold over 1,200 and between registration fees and sponsors raised over $70,000. The continued and growing success of this cause is a testament to the very big heart of our extended community.  The Fuccile Foundation strives to continue to help those in need in the Metuchen/Edison area and you can learn more about just a few of our families by clicking on this link Fuce 5 Families

Another way to help and have fun!

On Wednesday, September 17th at 9AM at Fiddler's Elbow Country Club in Far Hills, NJ, friends and co-workers of Mike's will host the 7th annual Michael Fuccile Memorial golf outing.  All proceeds from this outing will benefit the Fuccile Foundation.  This event presents a wonderful annual opportunity for Michael's family, friends, co-workers and all contributors (his extended family) to spend quality time together remembering Michael as the special husband, father, son and friend that he was, and to celebrate his life. To learn more follow this link to the registration form: Golf Outing Brochure


Thank you again for the continued support!  We wish you a safe and pleasant Labor day weekend.  Best of luck to all of our younger racers as they head back to school.

The Kids Theater Experience is a unique private acting/theater studio for children grades 3-10 that focuses on the role of the actor and has become a successful Metuchen institution.  The children take group acting lessons concentrating on the technical aspects of the voice, body and mind while learning how to tell, relate to and react to a playwrights story.  As they enter their sixth year, actors/professional musicians/instructors/co-founding partners Ann Marie Mullen and Beth Lucas add new skills to the program in order to accommodate the needs of both the new student and the progressing student. Who is looking for exciting new challenges in performance? Check out the new schedule of classes available.
