Thank you to all of our supporters – sponsors, restaurants, auction donors, guests, and volunteers for a wonderful event!

We are so grateful to Eriqah Vincent ’02 for her inspiring message on the impact Link had on her life and to Adedire Fakorede’10 for his heartfelt introduction of the evening’s honorees Ellen Maher and NJGoals Ahead.  And, to all of the Link students who performed in the fabulous vocal ensemble, Her Voice, under the guidance of Lisette Santiago, music teaching artist from Jazz House Kids; the African Dancers, led by Candace Hundley-Kamate from Newark School of the Arts; and those students who greeted our guests at the door! Proceeds from A Taste of Newark support student programming (arts , adventure education, field trips, and more) that nurture the “mind, body, and spirit” of each and every student at Link Community Charter School, helping to prepare them for success in high school and beyond.

Scroll down for photos from the event!
