Upcoming Events

East Rutherford, NJ – The Christie Administration’s Season of Service scores a touchdown this weekend when the New York Jets host a group of children with autism, their families and teachers at the Jets football game at MetLife Stadium.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation and NJ TRANSIT are teaming up with the Jets for the third annual New York Jets Dream Express event that includes free tickets and refreshments for the group courtesy of the Jets and complimentary NJ TRANSIT travel to and from Secaucus Junction.

This year’s event will benefit children who attend the Somerset Hills Learning Institute in Bedminster. 

“The New Jersey Department of Transportation and NJ TRANSIT are honored to work with the New York Jets to provide a fun-filled day for Somerset Hills Learning Institute students and their family members,” said NJDOT Assistant Commissioner Anthony Attanasio.

“NJ TRANSIT is very pleased to participate in the Christie Administration’s Season of Service by supporting an event that will bring cheer to these children and their families and teachers,” said NJ TRANSIT Executive Director Jim Weinstein.

“Autism often prevents a family from doing things together,” said Somerset Hills Learning Institute Executive Director Dr. Kevin Brothers.  “To have the opportunity to enjoy a Jets game together means the world to our families.”

About 20 students, family members and institute staff members will be attending the game.
