Newman Cares, Inc. Blockfest 2018

Newman Cares, Inc. held their annual Blockfest for charity, and #HipNJ was there for it all!

Newman Cares Inc. gathers neighbors, friends and family for a block party filled with music, food and fun for everyone of all ages. The event, started by the Conroy family in 2013 , drew guests from throughout the Garden State and beyond.

Tommy Conroy, one of the event’s organizers, sang his heart out on stage in memory of his late brother, Chris Conroy, who was the first honoree of the Newman Cares Blockfest. His brother always had a strong admiration for music, and this was a touching tribute.

The Board of Directors of Newman Cares, Inc. announced that the charity for Blockfest 2018 was Minette’s Angels. Founded in 2004, Minette’s Angels is a non-profit breast cancer foundation based out of Verona. The Foundation provides assistance to those in treatment, supports research and promotes breast health awareness, which is vital to saving lives.

Chef Carmen Quagliata of Union Square Café provided guests with a delicious assortment including hamburgers, hot dogs and pulled pork sliders. The food was just one of the many things that made this an event to brag about.

It was a night full of games, dancing, and coming together for a great cause. To learn more about Newman Cares, Inc., click here.
