Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday with #HipNJ

Yesterday was an eventful Giving Tuesday filled with generous donations towards the opening of the Connie Dwyer Breast Center at Trinitas Regional Medical Center. We had the chance to go live with various folks who all share our passion and excitement for the opening of this center and the great work it is sure to do for patients to come! 

We are so close to our goal of $5,000 raised, help us reach our goal and make a positive difference for so many lives! You can Donate Here!

Check out these interviews all recorded live yesterday hosted by ABC7NY’s very own NJ Burkett and the VP of the Trinitas Health Foundation Nadine Brechner!

Let your generosity spill over from Tuesday and help us reach our fundraising goal, donate today – every little bit counts!

Emily Manz on Have You Met Newark Tours

Emily Manz, founder of Have You Met Newark Tours, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss the biggest misconceptions of Brick City.

Founded in 2012, Have You Met Newark offers fun and informative walking tours, food tours, and bar crawls. Guides trace historic landmarks from Newark’s past and explores its current vibrancy with visits to galleries, shops, eateries, churches, and parks.

“One huge misconception is that the people in Newark don’t enjoy their hometown,” Manz says. “When you come on a tour, you really see that everyone is part of the community and contributing to their community.”

​The guides are Newark residents, and co-founders are urban planners committed to the city. Tours always feature guest speakers and include a snack.
