BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - For the second consecutive year, The Connell Company, along with Embassy Suites and Grain and Cane Restaurant are the presenting sponsor, donating $10,000 to the Berkeley Heights Winter Walk.

The popular Berkeley Heights Winter Walk event will be held on Saturday, December 2 in conjunction with the Berkeley Heights Recreation Special Events Tree Lighting Ceremony. 

The Winter Walk was started three years ago by a handful of business owners in Berkeley Heights to draw the community to downtown Berkeley Heights by hosting a free festive event to entertain all. Downtown Berkeley Heights was converted into a winter wonderland with horse drawn carriage and trolley rides, a synthetic ice skating rink, live entertainment, and a host of free give aways courtesy of the Berkeley Heights Business Community. Together, approximately 100 local businesses are involved through sponsorship or hosting their own attraction at the event.
