On Wednesday, May 3, over 200 kids and adults joined the JCO of Northern Bergen County at its second annual Lemonade Stand and Food Truck Fest, held in Lions Park, Upper Saddle River. Attendees enjoyed tasty treats and beautiful spring weather, while raising critical funds to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. The mission of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is to raise money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, research new treatments and cures, and encourage and empower others – especially children – to get involved and make a difference for children with cancer. The JCO would like to thank all of the participants that made the event possible: Carmelo’s Brick Oven Pizza; Dr. Pickle, Philly Fry, Party Rental Ltd., Brain Balance of Allendale, Edgar Music Entertaiment, Jonathan Blair Magic and and of course USR’s favorite ice cream man. For more information about the JCO or to become a sponsor for next year’s Food Truck Fest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On March 16th, over 70 women attended the JCO’s Style Edit and Beauty Bar event. The ladies’ night out was filled with shopping, complimentary beauty treatments, raffle prizes, small bites and of course a good cause! Event proceeds will be donated to JDRF and other community charities!
