Ridgewood Nj, during the Wednesday nights Village Council meeting a proclamation was read to honor Feeds the Frontlines. Feed the Frontlines – Helping Those In Need Initiative began as a call-to-action to provide ready-to-eat meals prepared by local Ridgewood restaurants to first responders, community groups and people in need during the pandemic.  During the height of the pandemic in Spring 2020, it was an organized way for people to help feed local healthcare workers, first responders and people in need while supporting local restaurants who have been hit hard economically.   This initiative earned the volunteer leadership team the 2021 NJ Governor’s Jefferson Award for volunteer program in September 2021.

Ridgewood NJ, The holiday season is quickly approaching and we are already gearing up for our 2nd annual Ugly Sweater Party! This year it will be on December 12 at 9 PM. In case you missed it last year, we started this contest to raise donations for a foundation very close to us. 100% of our proceeds as well as money from raffles, 50/50, and cover charge ($5), will go directly to Tristan’s Gift of Hope Foundation.

Tristan Morris is a 18 year old Ridgewood resident who has been battling Anaplastic Astrocytoma and the side effects for the majority of his life. Tristan started this foundation in order to ensure life giving care can be provided to those facing the daunting medical challenges that Tristan himself continues to face.

This year we are giving other businesses in town the opportunity to donate to this amazing opportunity to help one of our own. We are looking for donations in the form of gift baskets or gift certificates to raffle off. Any amount no matter how big or small will be greatly appreciated. In return, we will give businesses that donate either free admission or drink vouchers for that night.

If you are interested in donating to this great cause, it IS tax deductible and we will be able to provide you with the 501(c)(3) EIN number! You can drop the donations off to MacMurphy’s (8 Godwin Ave.) or we will gladly come pick them up at your location.

If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out  to Macmurphys@hotmail.com or call the bar number (201)444-0500 .
