In addition to her work on television, Caputo is the author of three inspiring New York Times best-sellers. This includes There’s More to Life Than This, You Can’t Make This Stuff Up and Life-Changing Lessons from Heaven. There is also the recent Good Grief: Heal Your Soul, Honor Your Loved Ones, and Learn to Live Again.

This event will include live video simulcast to ensure that every audience member will have an up-close experience. Please note that purchasing a ticket does not guarantee a reading. VIP packages are available.

Goya Foods Becomes NJPAC’s Official Sponsor of Latin Programming and Education

New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) has designated Goya Foods, Inc. as its Official Sponsor of Latin Programming and Education in an agreement to advance Latin culture in the state through performance, literacy, arts training, nutrition in schools, and community engagement.

A $100,000 grant from the New Jersey-based company will help support NJPAC programs, such as Dancing Classrooms™ – a nationally recognized ballroom dance competition for fifth- and eighth-graders in Greater Newark – and Books on the Move, which brings dramatic readings of children’s books to libraries and community centers.

In addition, NJPAC will be a conduit for Goya Foods’ MyPlate (MiPlato) Nutrition Program by introducing Meriterese Racanelli, Food Scientist/Nutritionist for Goya, to a pair of culinary programs in Newark. The MyPlate campaign was created in 2012, when Goya Foods collaborated with the USDA and Michelle Obama to educate Hispanic and general market consumers about healthy eating.

“I’m a great admirer of the philanthropy practiced by Goya Foods throughout the world, so I’m especially gratified that the company shares our mission and is now part of the family,” said NJPAC President and CEO John Schreiber. “As the sponsor of concerts by Latin artists and special programs that focus on nutrition and literacy, Goya Foods will be a valued partner and advocate for positive change in our diverse cultural community.”

President of Goya Foods Bob Unanue added,“We are proud to support the programs offered at NJPAC because of the organization’s commitment to promoting the overall well-being of our communities throughout New Jersey and beyond.”
