The First Responders Dinner on Academy brings together members of the Newark community to fundraise for the Newark FOP 4 Catastrophe Fund, Aetna Hose, Hook & Ladder Capital Campaign Fund, and The Newark Partnership (TNP). On Thursday, July 25, 2019, we close down Academy Street between Main St and Delaware Ave to dine under a big party tent. Guests will enjoy a six-course meal provided by 14 of Newark’s finest chefs while listening to live music with friends. Newark's chefs will share details on their handcrafted courses throughout the evening. Sponsored by Bloom Energy and Tito's Vodka, this event brings together the best that Newark has to offer for a great cause.
