The New York Jets will hold their 12th annual “Taste of the Jets” event on Monday, November 16 at 4 World Trade Center, in partnership with Saks Fifth Avenue to benefit ShopRite Partners in Caring.

“Saks is proud to be a part of this exciting event with the New York Jets to fight hunger in our community,” said Tom Ott, SVP GMM Men’s at Saks. “This year, Jets fans have the opportunity to see the latest in men’s fashion from Saks including Diesel, Eleventy, G Star Raw, Hugo Boss, Movado, PRPS, Strellson and Saks Fifth Avenue’s private menswear collection.”

In addition, food will be available from an incredible lineup of restaurants, including STK, Lugo Cucina Italiana and Emma’s Ale House, each of which will serve a signature dish to the guests. ShopRite and Calandra’s will provide the desserts to top off the culinary portion of the night.
