Welcome to the  

Men of Essex Website

Message From the President 

Dear Friends, Business Associates and Sponsors:

On behalf of the Men of Essex, Inc., I want to thank you  for taking the time to view our website.  The Men of Essex is one of New Jersey's oldest African-American  charitable organizations dedicated to bettering the lives of residents in the Greater Essex County community.  This year we are honored to have as  a 60th Annual Awards Dinner with Darryl White, as our Key Note Speaker who was our 1969 Essex Award Winner and two time all American.  

We also would like to thank those who attended and  participated in our annual  59th Golf Classic (“The  Classic”) that has proudly grown to become one of the most successful and  most-anticipated fundraising events of the summer season.

Again the proceeds of our fundraisers throughout the  year, assisted us in fulfilling  our mission of recognizing student-athletes for their achievements and supporting their higher education aspirations via our  Student Aid Fund.  

The Men of Essex is a 501[C] [3]  non-profit organization. Contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

 Additionally, you  may contact me directly concerning future events at 973-673-8632.
Thanks again for your support.
