Update on our upcoming events; our June meetup will be attending Cupcakefest in New Jersey on June 23rd:
Cupcakefest is an all-day concert and festival presented by Sweet Avenue. Cupcakefest will feature a full day of bands performing at the Lincoln Park Band Shell (176 Park Ave) in Rutherford, NJ. In addition to the great local music, Cupcakefest also includes tons of awesome crafters and vendors, yummy cupcakes, raffles, and a cupcake eating contest to cap off the day.
This year, Cupcakefest will benefit the John A. Bukowski Shelter for Animals in Bloomfield, NJ and the NJSPCA. All proceeds from raffles will be donated to the Shelter and the NJSPCA, and because the event is free to the public, attendees are encouraged to bring a monetary or pet food/supply donation for the Shelter and/or the SPCA. Donations of all types are always needed and always appreciated.
And on July 14th from 2 to 4 pm it's our 5th annual Central Park picnic!. We will be at the bottom of Cedar Hill under a tree. Near the entrance on 5th Avenue. Details are below. Also, Meetup is holding a contest to celebrate their 10-year anniversary and you can win a trip to Memphis.
