"A Conversation with Michael Kay" offers a rare opportunity to hear the famed sportscaster in an intimate setting. Kay's voice is well known among fans of the New York Yankees for which he has called games on the YES Network since 2002 and on WABC radio for the ten years prior. In addition to his play-by-play duties, Kay is the host of "CenterStage", a one-on-one interview series with the superstars of sports and entertainment that airs on YES. He is also heard weekdays on ESPN Radio with "The Michael Kay Show".

The Fleet Fair includes more than 15 exhibitors including Ford/Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, Subaru, Toyota, Audi, Pep Boys, AAMCO, ARI, and Corporate Claims Management.
Items donated by attendees will be delivered to Jersey Cares for their First Night Kit Program, which provides kits for domestic violence shelters, transitional housing facilities, runaway safe havens, foster homes, and other agencies with transitional populations in need of hygiene items on the "first night" of their stay.
