BLOCKFEST 2019 — and that's a wrap!

NJ Sharing NetworkThe Board of Directors of Newman Cares, Inc. would like to thank you for your support of Blockfest 2019 and the NJ SHARING NETWORK.

Mother Nature could not have sent better weather for the event. It was a beautiful sunny day, with lots of happy faces and love on the street! THANK YOU to all the volunteers who made this year's event such a big success.

We're going to let the dust settle for a few weeks before we send out the wrap-up announcement with final numbers. Stay tuned. In the meantime, if you haven't already, please take a moment to learn about our honorees and their causes:


Each year we raise money for a charity in honor of one or more people who has impacted residents of Newman and the surrounding blocks — either directly or through just being residents of Verona.
