MORRISTOWN, N.J., April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Women's Association for Morristown Medical Center is pleased to announce Crum & Forster as the Diamond Sponsor for the 18th Mansion in May Designer Showhouse and Gardens. The signature fundraiser will be held at Alnwick Hall - The Abbey and open to the public for touring from May 1 - May 31, 2017. Located in the heart of Morris Township, Alnwick Hall -The Abbey, is a 20,000 square foot orange- colored brick and stone mansion modeled after fifteenth and sixteenth century English prototypes.
Crum & Forster, a national company that provides specialty and standard commercial insurance products, and whose roots go back to 1822, has written most of its recent history at 305 Madison Avenue, which sits right next door to The Abbey on that once-fabled strip known as Millionaires' Row.
"We are proud to be a member of the Morristown community and are honored to be the Diamond Sponsor of the 2017 Mansion in May event, whose funds will establish the Center for Nursing Innovation and Research at Morristown Medical Center," said Marc Adee, chairman and chief executive officer of Crum & Forster.
As part of Fairfax Financial Holdings, Crum & Forster is a member of a family of companies that encourages the spirit of giving and believes in supporting the communities where their employees live and work. The company culture is built on the idea that by doing well, they can do much good. For Morristown Medical Center, this certainly will be the case. Crum & Forster's generous donation will help fund the new Center for Nursing Innovation and Research, which will allow nurses to meet, exchange ideas and design solutions to existing and emerging health concerns.
"We are thrilled to have Crum & Forster as our Diamond Sponsor for Mansion in May 2017. Their vision and long-standing history as a premier insurance company correlates well to the longevity of the Women's Association for Morristown Medical Center," said Katie Nolle, General Co-Chair of Mansion in May 2017. Further, she states, "We welcome their generous sponsorship and are so grateful for their support of our cause to establish the Center for Nursing Innovation and Research for Morristown Medical Center."
Alnwick Hall - The Abbey, designed by New York architect Percy Griffin, was the country mansion to Edward Meany, an attorney and businessman and his wife, Rosalie Behr Meany. It remains as one of the last great estates situated along the stretch of Madison Avenue leading into Morristown, once known as "the finest four miles in the world." Visitors to this year's Mansion in May at Alnwick Hall-The Abbey will experience a newly transformed estate created by 45 interior and 17 landscape designers into a magnificent designer showhouse and gardens.
