The $200,000 he donated was used to pay off money owed on the Fair Lawn Campus so that the center could begin working toward the expansion (CTC Upper School) with a clean slate. “Thanks to this challenge, we not only paid off Fair Lawn, but we had money left over to put toward the expansion,” Hoffman explained. In 2008, Bolger again challenged the center to raise $200,000 by Jan. 15, which he matched 50 cents on the dollar. The center completed the challenge and was awarded $100,000 toward the expansion project. The 50-year-old school (previously known as the Cerebral Palsy Center on the Valley Hospital grounds in Ridgewood) is a state-certified not for profit private institution for children with multiple disabilities.
