SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - The South Plainfield community came together on Saturday, May 16 for a fundraising event for 6-year-old Brianna Feeney and her family.

The event was a huge success due to the generosity of the residents and organizations in South Plainfield. Wheels for Bri is to help Brianna Feeney and her family to get a much needed van.

The South Plainfield Community will once again come together on June 20 for “Wheelchair Basketball Games” sponsored by Coaches Care. The event will take place at the South Plainfield High School Gymnasium from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Lions Club will be on hand cooking food all day for the event and music will be provided by former South Plainfield Middle School teacher, John Limyansky. There will also be a tricky tray for the residents to try their luck.
