On the day after Thanksgiving, join fellow Cranford residents, family and friends on the Ray White Track at Memorial Field for Track Friday 2019.

Track Friday is held on the day after Thanksgiving, a day commonly known for mega sales and commercialism. Participants are encouraged to redirect some of their Black Friday dollar s to charitable causes, while also spending time with their community and burning off some Thanksgiving calories.

There is no registration fee to participate for Track Friday; all members of the community are invited. Instead, we encourage everyone to make a donation of any amount to a charity of their choice through our MightyCause team page.

Please support a charity listed on our Leaderboard, or add your own campaign by clicking “Join Team” below.

This year, the Jaycees have added The Valerie Fund to the Team Leaderboard. The Valerie Fund is a New Jersey-based 501(c)(3) that has provided tremendous support to families in our community affected by pediatric cancer.  Please consider a donation to The Valerie Fund or any of the charities on the Leaderboard.

See you at the Ray White Track on November 29th at 11 AM!

For 81 years The Celebration Singers have been entertaining the greater Union County community and audiences across the globe during international tours. Join them on December 6 and 7, 2019 at 8 PM for a winter concert celebrating the songs of the season.

Comprised of over 100 singers ranging in age from 9-90, this community choir’s commitment to artistic excellence and its engaging and dynamic style provides its diverse singers and audiences with a compelling musical experience. Over the years, the choir membership has included families of all generations. Several current members of the Adult Choir were previous Children’s Choir members and singers in the Youth Choirs include children of Adult singers. It’s a multi-generational community, which enhances the breadth of genres and cultures from which they draw upon in their programs.

For some, it’s the only time in their busy lives when they can express themselves through art – it’s a beautiful and truly meaningful opportunity.” Said Joe Elefante, Artistic Director of The Celebration Singers.
