On Thursday, June 30, the sold-out inaugural Newark Wine on the Water raised funds for Newark Riverfront Revival programs and brought together an excellent group to converse, relax, and talk about the future of the riverfront. Immense thanks to our sponsors at the Newark Downtown District and Lisbon Wines & Liquors. Special gratitude to Summer 2011 Tour Coordinator Alicia Rouault and Summer 2009 Tour Coordinator Sumorwuo Zaza.
