New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark showed her support for the Spring Lake Toys Foundation at their gala luncheon Thursday afternoon. The Saddle River resident joined 200 guests for a three course sit down lunch overlooking the beautiful fall foliage outside Indian Trail Club in Franklin Lakes. The ladies were also treated to a bubbly bar, as well as a silent auction and basket raffles with over 100 fabulous prizes. The annual event benefits this amazing non-profit which supports the needs of local children with serious illnesses and their families by granting gifts of new toys and providing financial assistance.
