The 5th Annual Dream Dinner is being planned by a student coalition dedicated to helping residents of Hunterdon County who have low-income and face food and housing shortages. Local businesses are donating food and other items that will help support the community based dinner. The menu will include salad, bread, pasta, dessert and drinks. All proceeds from this Dream Dinner will go to Family Promise/IHN. Adult tickets are $10 and children are $5 (children under 5 are free) and take-out is available. Those who attend the dinner will be served an excellent meal and enjoy entertainment from some of Hunterdon Central’s finest musicians and hear from former Family Promise clients. The event was a huge success last year and will again bring awareness to these pivotal issues and raise money to support the cause. The success of the Dream Dinner depends on everyone in the community. Support the Dream Dinner and you will be helping families in your own neighborhood!

Unity Bank hosted the 6th Annual Crusin’ Bob’s Classic Car Show on Sunday, June 24th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at its Clinton headquarters branch, benefitting Family Promise of Hunterdon County, Inc. and the Arc of Hunterdon County. Sponsorships and registration fees to compete in the classic car competition helped to raise funds for important community services.
The event is part of Unity Bank’s continuing collaboration with Family Promise, which provides temporary housing to those in need and homeless prevention services through the Interfaith Hospitality Network. From helping Family Promise clients establish bank accounts to supporting numerous events throughout the year and responding to unique requests such as providing Christmas gifts for an entire family, Unity Bank has established strong community partnership with the organization.
“Family Promise and the Arc are truly vital to our community,” said Unity Bank President & CEO James A. Hughes. “The event is really a great time with all the classic automobiles on display and hundreds of people come out for a wonderful day of family fun. For Unity Bank, its extra special because we get to help great organizations and it’s our one annual event where we have the community visit our corporate headquarters.”
Dickens Lane Jewelers & Wedding Center was the presenting sponsor for the car show. Music was provided by Doctor D. Entertainment and guests enjoyed games, prizes, food and dozens of great classic cars. Several lucky guests had an opportunity to grab cash for 30 seconds in the Unity Bank Blizzard of Dollars booth.
“The event has become a great success in large part because of the many sponsors and classic car owners who help us raise funds for these important community organizations,” said Hughes. “We encourage local residents, companies and organizations to join us in this important endeavor.”
The classic car owners competed for cash prizes in 10 different categories. Show attendees do all judging. Please visit: www.unitybank.com/carshow/ for more information on results of the competition.
