• Eric James 2nd Annual Walk – A Huge Success! Thank you all!

The “2020” walk was held on April 17th and was a huge success. As a result of all fundraising efforts, it was our pleasure to present $3000 to Make-A-Wish® New Jersey and $3500 to Common Ground Grief Center. Both organizations were very appreciative of the donations and will put them to good use.

Make-A-Wish® New Jersey serves a unique, and vital, role in helping strengthen and empower children battling critical illnesses. They are now in the process of identifying a specific wish that we will adopt in Eric’s memory.

The mission of Common Ground is to provide support in a safe place where children, teens and their families grieving a death can come together and share their experiences as they begin the journey through their grief process. The Center is supported solely by private donations through individuals, corporations, foundations and grants. Because of your donations, they are purchasing some much needed art supplies for the children.

Thank you for supporting The Eric James Antico Jr Foundation. We know that Eric is smiling on us all as we continue to do good, meaningful work in his name.

This foundation is dedicated to the memory and spirit of

Eric James Antico, Jr. 

Eric suffered tremendously, struggling from the disease of addiction.  He was a beautiful soul… so loved by all those around him.  His light shone so bright on all lives he touched.  Eric was a warrior and fought hard, but in the end, lost his battle.  His foundation will serve to save others. Eric saved so many lives with his organ donations and his work will continue through his foundation. 

For those of us who had the privilege of knowing Eric, our lives have forever been changed by his love, laughter and genuine caring for others. Eric would want his foundation to make a difference… to call attention to the fact that we are making no progress in addressing the opioid crisis. Now more than ever, action is needed.
