Hoboken Historical Museum’s Annual Masked Ball and Auction

Hey #HipNJ! The Hoboken Historical Museum is hosting a special Masked Ball and Auction on Friday, Oct. 26, 2018. This year, the event will be hosted at the W Hoboken with emcee Marci Rubin of News 12 New Jersey.

Guests will enjoy dinner, an open bar, a variety of auction items from Hoboken businesses and an evening of dancing with a live DJ.
Proceeds from the Gala will support the Museum’s exhibitions, education programs, preservation of collections and research, as well as its next exhibit, “Hudson County Then & Now,” which opens January 27, 2019. The interactive exhibit, using a custom augmented reality app designed by Stevens Institute of Technology, will feature hundreds of historical images on postcards from the early 1900s to the 1960s of Hoboken and surrounding towns. With the use of AR technology, visitors will have a unique glimpse into the art, architecture, and development of each city over the last 60 years. There are also educational programs and student lessons plans being developed for each community.

Continuing on the “Then & Now” theme, at the Oct. 26 Gala, the Museum will present a Hoboken Hero Award to an individual who has made a difference in Hoboken community. The Museum will also recognize former trustees of the Museum, honoring those who have helped preserve Hoboken’s vast history through their support of the Museum.

A highlight of the evening will be restauranteur and auctioneer extraordinaire Eugene Flinn hosting our popular Live Auction, featuring coveted experiences, including:
-A summer pass to the Shipyard pool with a view
-One week stay in San Miguel Allende, Mexico
-One week stay at White Face Lodge in Lake Placid, NY
-A year of indoor parking in uptown Hoboken
-A special themed dinner for a party of 10 at Anthony David’s, with wine pairings
-And an overnight stay with dinner at the W Hoboken or Standard Hotel in New York

Expanded Silent Auction
An expanded silent auction this year will include dozens of tempting packages, artworks and gift certificates for local businesses, including tickets to see Tony Award winning “The Band’s Visit” at the Ethel Barrymore Theater on Broadway, tickets to a taping of the hit morning talk show “Live with Kelly & Ryan,” and a Hoboken Memorial Day Parade ride for kids on a fire truck.

Smart-phone bidding will make it easy for everyone to compete for these and other donated packages from Prime Cycle, Hudson Table, Cellar 335, Pier 13/NY Harbor Jet Ski, Liberty Science Center, a stay at the Tropicana Atlantic City, a framed print by local artist Ricardo Roig, vintage Hoboken images on canvas…and much more!

Tickets to the Masked Ball Gala are $150 per person.

The event is made possible through the generous support of sponsors including: BCB Community Bank, Bijou Properties, Halstead Properties NJ, Haven Savings Bank, Provident Bank, Strategic Insurance Partners, LA Photo Party and Rhythm in Motion, as well as supporters Cindy Cray, the Schmalzbauer Family, Nancy Lynch and Chris Falkner, and Jim Magenheimer and Terry Pranses.

About the Hoboken Historical Museum
Founded 1986, the Museum’s mission is to educate the public about Hoboken’s history, diverse culture, architecture and historic landmarks.

The Museum is open six days a week, 2 – 7 pm on Tues. – Thurs., 1 – 5 pm on Fridays, and noon – 5 pm on weekends. It offers special exhibits, tours, events and lectures, as well as educational programs for adults and children on a weekly basis.

Hoboken Wellness Crawl

HOBOKEN GIRL HOSTS SECOND ANNUAL HOBOKEN WELLNESS CRAWL

HobokenGirl.com, the Hudson County website centered on all things Hoboken and Jersey City, is celebrating health and wellness in Hoboken with their 2nd Annual Hoboken Wellness Crawl.

The Hoboken Wellness Crawl will occur on Sunday, April 22nd, 2018 from 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M throughout Hoboken with over 80 businesses participating. $1 from every ticket sold is being donated to The Water Project, a charity focused on supplying clean drinking water for communities around the world. Last year the event drew in over 600 people, and more are expected this year.

“We’re so excited to be celebrating our 2nd annual event — and supporting local health and wellness businesses in the process. It’s an amazing thing to be able to walk around one square mile and visit all of these local businesses devoted to making us healthier and happier,” says founder Jennifer Casson Tripucka. “This year, hosting the crawl on Earth Day, we chose our charity of choice to be The Water Project, as it is committed to helping communities in need of clean drinking water around the world.”

HOBOKEN WELLNESS CRAWL

An entry ticket includes an exclusive map to the Hoboken Wellness Crawl and an entry bracelet used to walk around Hoboken and visit Wellness Stops (at participants’ leisure throughout the day — similar to a bar crawl, sans alcohol). Event-goers will also have access to four Wellness Hubs in Hoboken filled with wellness-focused table vendors. All vendors will be offering samples and giveaways. Over 70 Hudson County businesses are participating.

Tickets are available online here — and on crawl day can be presented at four designated check-in spots around Hoboken – Uptown (Fit Foundry – 1416 Willow Avenue), Downtown (Birch – 92 River Street), West (The Spine and Sports Health Center at the Monroe Center – 720 Monroe Street), and CarePoint Health (109 Grand Street).

Carlos Lejnieks on Big Brothers Big Sisters

Carlos Lejnieks, President and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Essex, Hudson and Union Counties, sat with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to discuss the impact of mentorship.

How does mentorship impact a child? According to Lejnieks, it is a simple thing that adds up over time to be transformative. “We see the ripple effects, not only in that child’s life, but then also in the community in which they live and the schools they attend. It’s deeply impactful for the adult mentor as well,” he says.

For over a century, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers and children, ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country.
