NEW JERSEY—Advance Realty recently hosted a book fair at its One Gateway Center property in Newark, N.J. with the proceeds raised directed towards Hurricane Sandy cleanup.

The event raised funds for the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, an organization founded by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and First Lady Mary Pat Christie.

"At Advance Realty, we believe it’s important to give back to the communities in which we live and work,” said Peter Cocozilello, president and CEO of Advance Realty. “Each year, we hold a book fair at One Gateway Center as a way to aid the less fortunate members of our region. With all the devastation that New Jersey has experienced as a result of the hurricane, it only seemed logical to use this year’s event as a way to raise money for the state’s Sandy relief fund.”
