Come toast Link on its 50th Anniversary providing outstanding education to children in Newark and the surrounding area!

Don’t miss this evening in tribute to the legacy of Link, changing the lives of over 3,000 students since 1969 as: Project Link, Link Community School, Link Community Charter School and Link Education Partners.

Our Honorees: This year's event honors all who have made Link successful - the founding Sisters of St. Dominic, Caldwell, as well as those past and present teachers/staff, volunteers, board members, donors, partnering organizations, community groups, city officials, and the many individuals throughout Newark and beyond who recommended a child to attend Link. 

Our Alumni Speaker: Each year we select a distinguished alumnus/a to share a reflection on his/her experience at Link and the impact of Link on his/her life trajectory. We are always inspired by this special address. This year we are honored to have Khalid Jordan, Class of 2006 share his story on our special 50th anniversary year.  Read more about Khalid's journey from Link through Arts High School and Howard University to his career in the entertainment industry.

5:30 PM – 7:00 PM - Cocktails, Appetizers and Silent Auction
