With the Independence Day holiday around the corner, that also means it’s almost time for the Joey Bella Memorial Fund Tricky Tray and Band, Beer and Beefsteak Fundraiser. Scheduled for July 2 and 3, these fundraising events are traditionally held beneath the white tent at Gardner Field.
This year’s event will feature a myriad of craft beers, a beefsteak dinner and headlined by NJ’s favorite cover band, The Nerds.
As a parent with a sometimes-sick little boy, I know firsthand how hospital, specialists and therapy bills can be overwhelming. So knowing that organizations such as the Joey Bella Memorial Fund are there to help families so they can focus on caring for their kids. The Joey Bella Memorial Fund’s Band, Beer and Beefsteak fundraiser is an annual tradition for my friends and me. It’s the one time of year we try to let loose, have fun and contribute to a worthy cause. In fact, our table is the reigning bread tower winner. I think we’re plotting to hold on to that title once again.

The Joey Bella Memorial Fund Beer, Band and Beefsteak Fundraiser has sold more than 600 tickets so far, but unfortunately cut off online sales for now. According to the organizers, ticket sales may reopen later in the week, and they will have 50 tickets available the day of the event, on a first come first serve basis. We’ll update with a link when tickets go on sale again.
