CHERRY HILL, N.J. – From June through November, Caffe Aldo Lamberti raised money by selling raffle tickets for a model sailboat to benefit the Camden-based pediatric center at Cooper Hospital.

Caffe Aldo Lamberti donated the $2,500 raised to the charity as a result of the tickets sold. On Wednesday, January 14, 2015, Aldo Lamberti made a formal presentation to Susan Bass Levin, President and CEO of The Cooper Foundation, with an oversized check for that amount. Guests purchased $5 tickets for their chance to win a handmade model sailboat crafted by Aldo’s father, Giuseppe Lamberti. Last year, at the age of 90, Giuseppe dedicated himself to single-handedly replicating the first boat he ever sailed on, and asked his son, Aldo, to raffle it off to benefit a children’s charity. The raffle winner this year was Sandhun Mendis of Margate, NJ.
