Over 100 Friends and Business Partners Joined Inserra Family to Kick Off the 31st Year of its Summer Golf Outing for the Carl Inserra Leukemia Fund
During Last Three Decades, Fund Has Donated $3+ Million to Charity 

MAHWAH, N.J., May 19, 2017 – More than 100 friends and business partners recently celebrated with the Inserra family at a special reception at Hackensack Country Club to kick off the 31st year of its summer golf outing to benefit the Carl Inserra Leukemia Fund. During the last three decades, the Fund has donated over $3 million to nonprofits large and small throughout the U.S.

Each June, Inserra Supermarkets hosts the Annual Golf Outing in honor of the late Carl Inserra, the brother of Lawrence Inserra, Jr. Carl Inserra lived life to the fullest, and his greatest joy was the birth of his son, Carl, Jr. After a courageous two-year battle with leukemia, he succumbed to the dreaded disease. The support Carl Inserra received from his family, friends and associates gave the Inserra family the inspiration to establish this event to benefit others in his memory. The 2017 event is set for Monday, June 19.

Last year’s golf outing raised $450,000+ for charity. The Carl Inserra Leukemia Fund places an emphasis on medical organizations, including cure-focused cancer and diabetes research, and charities easing the financial burden of patients and families.

This year’s early sponsors include Gold Sponsor Schmidt Baking Company and Silver Sponsors HackensackUMC and Herr Foods. Bronze sponsors include Bimbo Bakeries, Tastykake-Wonder Bread, Kelloggs, Coca-Cola Refreshments, Snapple/Fiji, UTZ Quality Foods, EESI ATM Solutions and Cole Schotz. Corporate sponsors are Switch Electrical Contracting and ShopRite Village Supermarket.

“My family and I are so grateful for the support and generosity of our friends and business partners every year,” said Lawrence Inserra, Jr., chairman and CEO of Inserra Supermarkets, to the group at Hackensack Country Club. “With your help, we continue to further the outreach of the Fund and make a difference in the lives of countless people in need. We thank all of our outing sponsors and appreciate the commitment of our early sponsors.”

The family-owned ShopRite chain owns and operates 17 stores across Bergen, Hudson and Passaic Counties in New Jersey. In New York, it owns and operates five ShopRite stores in Rockland County.

“The Inserra family’s long-held tradition of giving back to the community remains as strong as ever as does their humble nature,” said Ron Onorato, president and COO of Inserra Supermarkets. “I take great pride in working for the Inserra family, and I know our vendors are proud to do business with Inserra Supermarkets.”

Lawrence Inserra, Jr. Receives Surprise Honor at Reception

At the reception, the Contractors & Building Services Committee of the Meadowlands Chamber of Commerce surprised Lawrence Inserra, Jr. with an award presentation for his kindness and support of the Meadowlands Basket Brigade. Every fall, the Meadowlands Basket Brigade creates more than 300 Thanksgiving baskets to donate to the homeless. The baskets include a complete Thanksgiving meal with all of the fixings for up to 10 people. Fred Hirsch and Anthony Guzzo, AIA, who created the Meadowlands Basket Brigade six years ago, presented the award to Inserra.

“There’s no one better in Bergen County than Larry Inserra,” said Hirsch. “Like so many other organizations in New Jersey through the years, we have been the recipient of his friendship and overwhelming generosity.”
