About the 6th Annual
Jackie & Hank Herskowitz
Sports Night Fundraising Event
Jackie and Hank with their son Jeffrey originally started this event in 2011. After Jackie and Hank’s passing in 2014, the event was renamed in their honor in recognition of the philanthropy they engaged in to help so many individuals. Their philanthropic legacy will continue with the 6th Annual Jackie & Hank Herskowitz Sports Night fundraising event, which raises money for its scholarship fund to further its mission to provide the children and seniors of Atlantic County, as well as the community as a whole, programs and services that enhance and enrich their lives.
