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.
