This photo, taken at Liberty State Park, serves as a reminder that New Jersey is a beautiful state. It offers scenic views and tranquility, whether it be July or October. 

This was a #HipNJ moment to remember! Our own Lisa Marie Latino and Maria Falzo were featured on Life & Living with Joanna Gagis. The duo discussed their inspiration for the site. Check out the segment here.

This is a photo from  Komen’s Race for the Cure! Komen North Jersey put on this inspiring event, featuring survivors, fighters, supporters, volunteers and friends. It was a beautiful day for a beautiful cause, and #HipNJ was proud to be there.

This is a snap from CareOne’s 200 Wishes fundraiser at the Prudential Center. CareOne and Make-A-Wish turned the Prudential Center into a life-size Candy Land for a day full of family fun.

Newark welcomed  Ono Grinds Poké to the neighborhood, one of the many reasons this is a #HipNJ city to watch in 2018. Newark is experiencing an influx of hip spots, and this Hawaiian-inspired poké bowl shop is no exception.

Garden State fashion expert Dawn Del Russo stopped by the #HipNJ studio to model three looks. She was one of the many notable guests that made their way to our studio this year, including Danielle Forte of 828 Clothing and Vic DiBitetto.

The W. Cary Edwards Education Foundation‘s  annual Touchdown on Education was at MetLife Stadium. The day of family fun and football raised $100,000.

Boo! This was a very #HipHalloween, as we featured Halloween experts from around the Garden State. For this picture, our very own Kelly was turned into a creepy clown thanks to Dena Ziemba.

Last but not least, we shared this quote about giving. #HipNJ Cares is a huge part of what we do, as we work with various charities to support some phenomenal causes. For example, this year we partnered with The Connie Dwyer Breast CenterTrinitas Regional Medical Center, CareOne and more.

This was quite a year, and we cannot wait to see what 2018 brings. 

Andrea Verdone Gorsegner on Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer

Andrea Verdone Gorsegner, founder of Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer, sat with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to discuss her organization.

People often assume that since cancer research has come such a long way, it must be helping the children as well. “In the past 25 years, there have only been three new drugs developed for our kids,” Gorsegner says.

 “What a lot of people don’t realize is that our kids get 4% of the research budget of the National Cancer Institute’,” she says. That 4% is then split among all different types of childhood cancer.

Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer’s goal is not only raise funds and awareness in regards to all things childhood cancer, but to also be a voice for all children and their families in their fight. To learn more, click here.
