The Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey (BIANJ) is a statewide nonprofit dedicated to improving the quality of life people experience after traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Since being founded in 1981 by a small group of concerned parents of children who had sustained brain injury, it has grown to become the primary source of information, education, advocacy, support, and hope for people with brain injury and their families in New Jersey.
Today, their dedicated staff, board, volunteers, donors, and community partners proudly serve over 10,000 New Jerseyans each year.
BIANJ is excited to announce the hosting of its 9th Annual Gala on Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at the Crystal Plaza in Livingston, New Jersey.
The gala – which raises funds to provide help, hope, and a voice to individuals and families in New Jersey living with brain injury – will kick off with a cocktail reception with buffet dinner and a silent auction, and conclude with an awards presentation.
Serving as Honorary Chairperson and Mistress of Ceremonies will be Rebecca “Becky” Quick, co-‐anchor of CNBC’s signature morning program Squawk Box.

In recognition of Brain Health Awareness Month, BIANJ has also launched the TBI Affected Me campaign at Instagram.com/BrainInjuryAllianceOfNJ. People affected by brain injury, directly or indirectly, are encouraged to submit photos and their stories to Instagram and include the hashtag #TBIaffectedme.
With more than two hundred entries submitted in less than two weeks, BIANJ has decided that the response has merited extending the campaign throughout the entire year in support of brain injury awareness!
