WHAT A DAY!!! Blockfest 2018 was one for the record books! Everything was bigger.

  • Volunteers stepped up and helped in every which way — THANK YOU for making a difference!
  • We had our highest attendance — THANK YOU for showing up!
  • We received the most dontains from those who could not make it — THANK YOU for remembering us!
  • We raised the most money of any Blockfest yet for the charity — THANK YOU for caring and sharing!

The Board of Directors of Newman Cares, Inc. is pleased to announce the charity for Blockfest 2018 is MINETTE'S ANGELS.

Founded in 2004, Minette's Angels is a non-profit breast cancer foundation based out of Verona, New Jersey.

The Foundation provides assistance to those in treatment, supports research and promotes breast health awareness, which is vital to saving lives. We offer scholarships to second year nursing students at Seton Hall University's College of Nursing. We also offer scholarships to Verona students entering the medical field, placing a priority on nursing majors.



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.
