Somerset Patriots Pay Tribute to Steve Kalafer on Friday June 11

The Flemington Car & Truck Country family of brands was saddened to learn of the passing of our founder Steve Kalafer on April 21 of this year at the age of 71. Since we learned about this tragic news, we’ve been paying tribute to him in our own ways at our various locations.

We’re happy to announce that Somerset Patriots, the Double-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, will be putting on an event in Steve’s honor with A Wonderful Life: A Tribute To Steve Kalafer! This tribute will be taking place on Friday June 11th at TD Bank Ballpark, located at 860 E Main Street in Bridgewater Township NJ.

Tickets to this event are free and are limited to only 6 per person. Gates will open at 6:00 pm and the event will start at 7:15 pm with a celebration of Kalafer’s life, highlighting his love of family, business & community that includes organizations such as the Somerset Health Care Foundation, RWJBarnabas Health, New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance & Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation.

This culminated last year with his induction into the NJ Hall of Fame. And we’re so thrilled that Steve Kalafer was able to give a speech at that virtual event, so he can enjoy the fact that members of the community that he dedicated his life to giving back to voted him in with other first-class inductees.

At the conclusion of the event, there will be a fireworks show accompanied by a scoreboard slideshow and a playlist of some of Steve Kalafer’s favorite songs. We couldn’t think of a better fitting tribute to our founder than this, so we hope to see you there!
