The Gift of Technology Brings Comfort to Even Our Tiniest Patients

Brave Beginnings

The mission of Children's Specialized Hospital Foundation is to secure philanthropic support for the vital programs and services at the hospital that are transforming the lives of children with special healthcare needs. By working with medical staff to identify areas where funding would make the greatest impact for patients, we ensure that every dollar we raise directly helps the kids in the care of Children's Specialized Hospital (CSH). In 2019, we learned about Brave Beginnings, a program of the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation, that provides grants for essential neonatal intensive care equipment and asked for their support.


Vincent Baricaua


Vincent Baricaua was first introduced to Children’s Specialized Hospital 10 years ago during a RE/MAX (longtime Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals partner) awards ceremony. It was Vincent’s first year in real estate and he was eager to make an impact, achieve great things and win sales awards! He was immediately struck by the award for #1 fundraising office in NJ, “I turned to the people around me and told them that that had to be the coolest award to win one day and I will win it!” Since that day, Vincent’s RE/MAX Our Town office has been the #1 Fundraising Office time and time again!

Vincent’s commitment to raising funds for CSHF isn’t just about winning awards, “To me it’s spiritual,” says Vincent. “It’s growth and contribution. It’s giving kids a fighting chance. It’s helping families who are praying to God to make miracles happen. I want to help families make those miracles happen.”


Howie Berkowitz


When Howie Berkowitz first learned about Children's Specialized Hospital Foundation several years ago, he instantly knew it was a charity he wanted to support- his spirit of giving was instilled in him at a very young age by his mother and father. As small business owners, his parents did not always have the means to give a lot, but no matter the circumstances they gave whatever they could, monetarily or with their time. Proud of their commitment to helping others, Howie has carried that spirit with him into adulthood.


Zack Alcorn


As the Fifth Annual Open at Metedeconk National approaches, we’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to Zack Alcorn, the newest member of our stellar golf committee. An avid golfer, Zack has used his golf knowledge and network to help plan an incredible day for our participants. “I love golf and have been fortunate to participate in this event in years past,” said Zack. “This year, I’m excited to be part of the process, planning a fun event at an amazing golf course while helping to make the world a better place for children who need our help most.”
