2021 Fundraiser

This year the fundraiser will support Sharon Condiracci and others in need. Six years ago, Sharon was diagnosed with breast cancer. After eight rounds of aggressive chemotherapy followed by bi-lateral mastectomy, 28 rounds of radiation and one year of IV treatments she was deemed in remission.


In 2019, Sharon received news her breast cancer returned this time as stage four and metastatic to the bones. It has now spread to her liver, lung, ribs, spine and lymph nodes. After continuously trying conventional treatment, Sharon turned to an integrative/alternative approach to help her beat the cancer - most of which was not and is not covered by health insurance. 


She currently works at Make-A-Wish New Jersey where she enjoys her team and the important work she does while she continues to seek treatment. She is grateful for each and every day she is a Metastatic Breast Cancer Thriver, chooses to not sweat the small stuff and loves spending her time with family, friends and her team at Make-A-Wish. 


This year’s fundraiser will also support the following organizations and foundations:

  • The Lustgarten Foundation, a pancreatic cancer research foundation, to help advance the scientific and medical research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of pancreatic cancer.

  • The Cancer Institute of New Jersey to fund the pediatric clinic to help children with economic needs.

  • The Phillip Frank Memorial Scholarship, a $1,000 college scholarship awarded to a Matawan High School graduation senior in memory of Phillip Frank who died in Iraq serving his country.

  • Mary’s Place by the Sea, a respite home for women who are receiving treatment for cancer.


Similar to last year, Raising Hope for Others, Inc. will not be hosting an in-person fundraiser this August. RHO will be accepting donations via PayPal, Venmo or check (can be sent to 461 Tennent Road, Manalapan, NJ 07726). All donations are being deposited into a segregated account and will be used to support the above listed organizations and foundations. God bless you and thank you in advance for your support and donation.


RHO will be hosting our 4th Annual Golf Outing on Tuesday, August 24, 2021 at Battleground Country Club in Manalapan, NJ. Please contact Chris Zaccaria for further information, registration and sponsorship opportunities at or 732-299-5248.
