This year, your support means more to NJPAC than ever!

Every Spring, we gather together to celebrate the power of the arts to transform lives. While this year’s Luncheon will be virtual, without our usual festivities on the stage of Prudential Hall, the joyful spirit and uplifting energy of this annual event will be as powerful as ever. Plus, the great Norma Kamali — the iconic fashion designer and author of I am Invincible — will join us to share her secrets for gliding boldly through each of life’s decades with purpose and power.

THE RONNIE GOLDBERG AWARD for “Outstanding Contributions to the Women@NJPAC” will be presented to:

Mindy A. Cohen

We will also honor our friend, philanthropist, NJPAC and Women@NJPAC Trustee Mindy A. Cohen, with the Ronnie Goldberg Award. An indefatigable force of nature, Mindy served as the fundraising consultant for the Spotlight Gala and Spring Luncheon for more than 20 years and has helped Women@NJPAC to raise millions of dollars for NJPAC and its arts education programs.

Your impact

Proceeds from the Spring Luncheon support NJPAC’s many arts education programs, from Saturday performance training to summer camps and in-school events for public school children — all efforts that continue virtually during the pandemic.
