PLAINFIELD – Seven elected officials joined together this morning at the Dairy Queen on South Avenue to show off their cake decorating skills, as part of NJ Sharing Network’s celebration of National Donate Life Month and Blue and Green Day. Each official had 20 minutes to decorate an ice cream cake that features an organ donation awareness message. The cakes were photographed; the images posted online for the public to vote for their favorite mayor and cake.
Unlike typical campaigns, ballot box stuffing is encouraged. Make a financial contribution to vote for your favorite cake. Organizers hope people vote early and often as the proceeds will go towards organ and tissue donation awareness. The winner will be announced June 9 at NJ Sharing Network’s Third-Annual 5K Walk & USATF Certified Race.
Participants included: (l-r) Berkeley Heights Mayor Joseph Bruno, Roselle Mayor Jamel Holley, North Plainfield Councilman Skip Stabile, Plainfield Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs, Edison Mayor Antonia Ricigliano, Roselle Park Mayor Joe Accardi and Cranford Mayor Tom Hannen.
