Many nonprofits rely on galas, auctions and other fundraising events to help support their organization each year.  The COVID-19 pandemic has caused most of those events to be canceled.  Hunterdon Strong was created in partnership with 11 community nonprofits and the County’s EMS in an effort to join forces and raise the much-needed funds that will ensure continued support for the Hunterdon community.  #HunterdonStrong will be live-streamed from ArtYard in Frenchtown, NJ on November 19, 2020 from 6 PM to 8 PM via YouTube.  100% of the funds raised from the event will support the participating organizations.  Along with ShopRite of Hunterdon County as the lead sponsor of this event, other generous lead supporters include:

  • Atlantic Health System
  • AT&T
  • Bristol Myers Squibb
  • Farm Credit East
  • Flemington Car & Truck Country
  • Flemington Department Store

When Hunterdon County faced the incredible challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic, this group of nonprofits raised their hands and stepped forward to the front line to meet the community’s needs during this unprecedented time.  These organizations assisted two to three times the volume of people they normally serve and provided direct support to Hunterdon County residents in areas such as health, housing, food and mental health among others. They continue to address the needs of our most vulnerable and the community at large.  Although the pandemic continues to impact our state and the nation, we are fortunate that in no small part due to the community’s commitment to working together, Hunterdon County remains one of the safest and healthiest counties in New Jersey and the Country.

The event will be a two-hour live stream broadcast via the internet and will include messaging from every participating organization, performances from local bands such as Anthony Krizan, formerly from The Spin Doctors, Winslow, We May Be Right, Anthony Amorim, Russel Norkevich, Black Cross Bank, Steel Horse and many more; as well as well wishes, and lots of giveaways, with the goal of raising $1.5 million.  The evening will culminate in a 50/50 that could reach $100,000!
