Join First Friends for Beer & BBQ as we celebrate 20 years of helping detained immigrants! They’ll be some fun surprises in store! Join First Friends of NJ & NY for Cheers & Beers for 20 Years , an informal and fun beer & BBQ event at Carvao BBQ in Jersey City!
First Friends of NJ & NY is a dynamic Kearny based non-profit organization that runs the oldest and largest immigrant detention visitation program in the county. We support hundreds of immigrants detained in 4 NJ jails by providing volunteer visitors, bond funds and advocacy services. We also offer post-release services such as jail pickups, housing and transportation to reunite released immigrants with family members throughout the USA.
Please come on out to learn more about what First Friends does and to meet some of the friends that we have helped and many of our outstanding volunteers.
BBQ & beer (and vegetarian options) will be provided with your purchased ticket….and we promise some fun surprises as well!
Tickets are $40 for general admission and $60 if you want to help sponsor a formerly detained friend’s attendance.
