First responders charity cook-off set for Sunday in Jersey City


The friendly rivalry between police and fire departments will reach new heights Sunday when Jersey City hosts its inaugural First Responders Charity Cook-off.

The event will be held at The Beacon, 20 Beacon Way in Jersey City, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jersey City police officers, firefighters and emergency medical technicians will be on hand, and many of them will be cooking up their favorite dishes hoping to win the favor of the crowd.

Those who purchase tickets will be able to vote for their favorite dishes and a special panel of celebrity judges will also help choose winners in various categories. The celebrity panel includes New Jersey Devils legend Ken Daneyko, “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro, and “Goodfellas/A Bronx Tale” actor Joey D’Onofrio, among others.
