On Behalf of Pershing Field Garden Friends and the Jersey City Reservoir Preservation Alliance we’d like to thank all those that came out to our Holiday fundraiser “Evergreen Gala” at the Lincoln Inn. Thanks to The Sensational Country Blues Wonders & Twiddlin’ Thumbs for providing the entertainment and to John at the Lincoln Inn for providing a great venue.
We could not do this without the ongoing support of our community partners the Washington Park Association, Riverview Neighborhood Association, Jersey City Parks Coalition, Heights Hope, West Side Community Alliance, Friends of Van Vorst Park and our respective boards.
Thanks to local merchants for their generous contributions:
Central Ave Liquors, Stop & Shop, Rite Aid, Radio Shack, Garden State News, Lu Lu’s Hair Zone, Bloomsbury Sq, Do You Tea, WHO’S baked goods, Los Tres Chilitos, Cathy King Pottery, Central Ave Dunkin Donuts, Renato’s, Tommy’s Family Restaurant and the Hyatt Regency. I would also like to thank those who solicited donations and contributed: Albina Meluso, Mary Daly, Debby DeVenezia & John Faherty, Tess O’brien, Diane & Tom Brown, Patricia O’Hanlon, Friends of the Loews, Gerald Lyons, Tami Resch, Maria Ambrossi and Patrick Ambrossi.
I’d also like to thank Council President Rolando Lavarro for attending and providing his continued support.
It is in this spirit of community that we raise a glass to all those that have made our progress possible this year and look forward to an outstanding New Year. Cheers!!
