LOL Comedy Event @ Kenilworth VFW
Oct 11 @ 6:30 pm
LOL Comedy Event @ Kenilworth VFW | Kenilworth | New Jersey | United States
Please support one of our own by purchasing tickets to a Comedy show at the Kenilworth VFW on Friday, October 11th to raise funds for Art Bilenker, who in addition to being a long time Cranford dentist was also a true highlight of the Jaycee’s Firecracker 4 miler each year where as a Jaycee, he served as the host and emcee at the end of the race, celebrating the winners, handing out prizes, and entertaining all the runners and their supporters with trivia games and all-around goofiness.

On July 4th, 2017, on his way to the race, Art suffered a catastrophic injury when he got out to inspect the generator in his pickup truck and the truck rolled over him, paralyzing him from the neck down. As you can imagine, he and his family have had to endure a great deal since then, and members of the Jaycees, along with two veterans organizations, Project Help and Vet Rest are doing what we can to offset some of the financial burden placed upon the Bilenker family.

The flier provides information on how to purchase tickets online, but I am also available if you’d like to purchase them locally and can be reached at 908-787-2085 or [email protected] If you order two, I’ll even drop them off at your house. For those of you know and love Cranford like I do, this is what our community is all about. Thank you for your support!

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!
