Library plans "Gourmet Gala"

The Library is planning a black-tie Gourmet Gala for May 18, 1998, at The Manor in West Orange. The gala is part of a major fund-raising campaign to secure $300,000 in matching funds for the grant we received from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

The evening's agenda includes a 7pm cocktail hour, an 8pm sit-down dinner at which several of New Jersey's finest restaurants will present their award-winning specialties, and an awards presentation for continuous contributions to academic and cultural development. The Peter Duchin Orchestra will provide the entertainment. Ticket price is $150; or $1,500 for a table of ten.

To pledge your support to the Library by purchasing tickets or an advertisement in the evening's program book, please call Nancy Allen (the Development Department) at (973) 733-7837.
