Night of Distinction Was An Evening to Remember!

The prestigious NJFC “Night of Distinction” reception to honor industry leaders was held this past Wednesday, at The Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset, NJ. This year’s honorees, pictured above from left to right, were: Samer Rahman of Allegiance Retail Services, Neil Greenstein of Brookdale ShopRite and ShopRite of Newark and Stew Leonard, Jr. of Stew Leonard’s. The event, with this powerful slate of honorees, drew more than 500 guests, including prominent food industry executives across the region.

Moreover, the event works to make a difference. Calandra’s Bakery of Newark led the way in bringing in scholarship donations by contributing tickets for signature sporting events to the silent auction which helped NJFC raise almost $30,000 for its Educational Development Scholarship Program. Additionally, all leftover food from the event was donated to Table to Table, a food rescue organization located in Saddle Brook. More photos from this great event will be shared soon.
