It seems like yesterday that we were enjoying ourselves at the DFF Charity Gala 2017 at the luxurious Maritime Parc in Liberty State Park in Jersey City but already plans are moving forward for Gala 2018 which will again be held at the Maritime Parc on October 4, 2018.
Joe Klecko, defensive lineman and member of the New York Jets famous “Sack Exchange” in 1981, has accepted our invitation to be included as one of our four “Distinguished Citizens” at the event. Joe is a welcome addition to the Dan Finn Foundation family.
Last year the DFF honored Maureen Hulings, Chairlady of the Jersey City St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, with the Brig. Gem James J. Grant (ret.) “Giving Back To the Community” award along with Kevin Cummings, President and CEO of Investors Bank, receiving the Ed “Faa” Ford “Contributions To Youth” award; Ray Lucas, Rutgers and NY Jets quarterback bestowed the Bob Hurley ” Excellence In & Through Sports” award; and Thomas DeGise, Hudson County Executive accepting the Dan Finn “Perseon Of the Year” award.
Hold the date; ticket information will be available shortly.
