Ready to shake off those winter blues? You’re in luck. Spring is just around the corner and so is New Community’s Spring Festival and Auction on Saturday, April 23, 2016.
This year’s festivities, which start at 7 p.m. and will go until midnight, will be held at New Community’s beautiful headquarters at St. Joseph Plaza at 233 West Market St. in Newark. The spacious venue, which has become a hotspot for parties, receptions and corporate functions, is an ideal setting for an evening of dinner, dancing and winning prizes.
With soaring ceilings, majestic architecture, hardwood floors and a newly installed sound system, St. Joseph Plaza has proven to be a timeless venue for special events and will not disappoint for the Spring Festival and Auction, according to Tracey Battles, philanthropy office and head of the planning committee.
“We are excited to rejuvenate this year’s Spring Festival and Auction and to showcase the best that St. Joseph Plaza has to offer the community,” he said.
The annual event raises money for the Monsignor William J. Linder Scholarship Fund, which provides funds to give students in need the opportunity to attend top prep schools in the area.
The fundraising itself provides plenty of entertainment during the evening. Guests can purchase raffle tickets for this year’s grand prizes of a Samsung 60” Smart LED TV (1st prize) and an Apple iPad Air 2 (2nd prize). Raffle tickets are $1 each and the drawing will take place on Saturday, April 23 at 11 p.m.
“The festival supports a great cause and gives NCC staff, residents and members of the community an opportunity to enjoy themselves,” Battles said.
There will be many more exciting items up for grabs as part of the auction, Pot of Gold prizes and the 50/50 cash raffle. Dinner is provided and a cash bar will also be available.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased from the head of each NCC department. For more information, call 973-497-4400.
