Joy Luedtke and her son and business partner, Lee Luedtke, of the prominent Long Beach Island-based Joy Luedtke Real Estate company recently hosted an outdoor fundraiser event raising $10,000 to benefit the Center for LGBTQ+ Health at Cooper University Health Care.
“We are grateful to the Luedtke family for their generous efforts. The proceeds of their event will support a wide range of wellness initiatives and services focused on meeting the unique health care needs of the LGBTQ+ community,” said Justin Schweitzer, DO, Medical Director for LGBTQ+ Health and Primary Care at Cooper Care Alliance.
“The Center for LGBTQ+ Health at Cooper is doing amazing work for a community that is often marginalized when it comes to their health care needs. It was our pleasure to host this event and we look forward to working with the team at Cooper and hosting another fundraiser during Pride Month next June,” said Joy Luedtke.
“The Cooper Foundation is appreciative of the support of committed donors like the Luedtkes whose support allows us to offer important programs and services to the community,” said Robert A. Ortiz Jr., JD, senior vice president and chief philanthropy officer of The Cooper Foundation. “Thoughtful gifts of all sizes help support a wide range of wellness initiatives and services focused on making the community happier and healthier.”
