NJPAC's Spotlight Gala 2018

The Women’s Association of NJPAC’s Spotlight Gala 2018

The Women’s Association of NJPAC’s Spotlight Gala 2018 kicks off NJPAC’s season and benefits NJPAC and its arts education programs. Event is on Saturday, September 29 @ 5:30PM – 11:30PM at New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Festive Black Tie Attire.

The Women’s Association of NJPAC has been raising money for NJPAC and creating magical moments for friends of the Arts Center for nearly 25 years now. The WA’s annual Spotlight Gala is always the party of the year in New Jersey–not just for the spectacular entertainment, but for the remarkable party that surrounds it.

This September, we’re going to out-do ourselves with a celebration of the musical legacies of Lena, Billie and Sarah, a one-time-only performance, features special surprise guest Valerie Simpson and music greats Cyrille Aimée, Southside Johnny, Raul Midón, Alice Smith, and Bernie Williams, performing songs made famous by jazz divas Lena Horne, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan. Hosted by six-time GRAMMY®-winning bassist Christian McBride and his Big Band!

Funds raised through this remarkable evening will send teaching artists into schools, put instruments into the hands of schoolchildren, and keep world-class artists on NJPAC’s stages.

Connie Dwyer Breast Center

#GivingTuesday with the Connie Dwyer Breast Center

Tomorrow is  #GivingTuesday and the perfect opportunity to give after winding down from a holiday weekend (right before diving into, let’s be honest, a holiday month!) Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth is still collecting donations for their newest addition, The Connie Dwyer Breast Center, in order to best serve the people that come through their doors to fight breast cancer, no matter their finances.

Patients of the breast center love the care they receive from every member of the staff, saying “from the doctors, to the nurses, to the techs, everyone is just amazing.”

To those suffering from breast cancer, and even those with loved ones suffering, the right care and sensitivity is paramount when trying to overcome this illness. The opening of The Connie Dwyer Breast Center at Trinitas will bring genuine kindness and excellent medical care to more patients in need than ever before. 

As you make plans with your family to travel or stay in, perhaps making gingerbread houses or spending the day decorating your home for the holidays, spare a few minutes to donate this #GivingTuesday, because for so many people, your generosity means no less than the world.

“Give so everyone in our community has a chance to beat breast cancer”
