Fundraising Events at NJPAC are hosted yearlong by the Women’s Association of NJPAC (WA). The WA’s mission is to promote, fund and advocate for New Jersey’s Arts Center and we aim to do that with style, panache and fun! We love to celebrate NJPAC…from intimate conversations with interesting and compelling speakers to networking cocktail parties to grand, black tie affairs.

Each event helps the WA to raise money for the general operating support of the Arts Center as well as support its flourishing Arts Education program. Guests can expect the unexpected mixed with some annual traditions. Fresh and entertaining, our events expose you to the splendor of the building itself, to fascinating people from all walks of life, to world-class performing arts, and to like-minded individuals and companies that pride themselves on supporting arts and culture in the great state of New Jersey.

Annual Spring Luncheon & Auction—this springtime tradition begins with networking and an abundant silent auction in the lobby where over 400 guests have fun bidding on handheld devices followed by a healthy and delicious lunch literally onstage in Prudential Hall—a unique and incredible vantage point! Luncheon table sponsorships and tickets include a program with featured speakers and a performance from the talented Arts Education students.

Leading Ladies Series—typically held prior to a performance at NJPAC, these are funny, thoughtful and provocative conversations with leading ladies of New Jersey who share their stories with us—the triumphs and the challenges. Very popular!

Annual Spotlight Gala—held in the fall, this is one of the most magical nights in NJ! An opportunity to dress to the nines, enjoy cocktails with 1,000 of the most influential professionals and philanthropists in the state, enjoy an amazing performance and awards ceremony followed by an elegant gourmet dinner, and capped off with a dessert extravaganza and dancing ‘til midnight.
