All are welcome to Charitable Giving Seminar Wednesday May 11th.

Newton, May 2, 2011–The Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice will present a free seminar on charitable giving, featuring Elenora L. Benz, of Benz and Reading, LLC, Attorneys at Law, on Wednesday, May 11 at 4:00 p.m. at the Lafayette House.

“Ellie” Benz concentrates her practice in the areas of wills, trusts, estate and business succession planning, probate and administration of estates. She is a graduate of the College of Saint Elizabeth, Convent, NJ, and earned her law degree at New York Law School, NY, NY.

Ellie belongs to the American Bar Association and the Bar Associations of New York, New Jersey, and Sussex County. She is a member and/or officer of the District XA Ethics Committee (currently Chairman), the Animal Law Committee of the NJ State Bar Association, the Sussex County Chamber of Commerce, the Senior Quality of Life Foundation, Inc., the Bioethics Committee of Newton Memorial Hospital, and The Branchville Rotary Club.

Ms. Benz points out that charitable giving, if done right, is mutually beneficial to both recipient and donor, and adds that she is amazed to find that many clients think that the only way to benefit a charity is to give cash contributions. In her many talks on estate planning, Ellie is known for demystifying planned giving and its benefits. “At the seminar I hope to educate donors on the many ways there are to benefit charities” Benz commented.

Doors will open and registration for the seminar will begin at 3:30, and Ellie’s discussion will be from 4:00 until 5:30, with ample time for questions and answers. Lite refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to Glenn Lewis at 973-383-0115, or email at
