Fellowship Village Theater Fundraiser Slated for April 20

Fellowship Senior Living will host its annual fundraising gala at the Bridgewater Manor in Bridgewater, on Saturday, April 20 at 6:30 p.m.  Proceeds from the evening, “A Magical Moment,” will benefit the Fellowship Village Community Renewal Fund.  The event marks the start of philanthropic efforts to construct a new theater for the non-profit continuing care retirement community in Basking Ridge.

 “With a new theater, Fellowship Senior Living will partner with local cultural organizations such as Ridge Light Opera of New Jersey and Trilogy Repertory Company for wonderful arts programs that will also be offered to the general public.  We are very excited about building a real community theater in the heart of Bernards Township,” says Brian Lawrence, president and CEO of Fellowship Senior Living. Trilogy and Ridge Light Opera will be the theater’s in-house performing arts groups.

The evening’s honorees are Fellowship Village resident Elaine Dooman, and Doug Kennedy, president of Peapack-Gladstone Bank. Dooman is being honored for her thespian contributions to the Fellowship Village community, as writer, director, and actor in numerous resident performed productions. Peapack-Gladstone Bank has been the on-site provider of banking services for Fellowship Village for 17 years, as well as a faithful supporter of its services. PGB president Doug Kennedy represents the continuing relationship forged by a history of service and bound by the growth of both organizations.

The tax deductible tickets for the gala are available at $200 each, which includes a cocktail hour, dinner, and dance music by the Michael LoCascio Quartet.  Ridge Light Opera will perform “Savoy Fare” a musical celebration of the works of Gilbert & Sullivan. Guests will also enjoy a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle.

Fellowship Senior Living provides a full range of senior services, including the Fellowship Village campus, home to 400 residents. The multi-purpose auditorium will, according to Brian Lawrence, “enhance life for our residents through wider exposure to the arts and allow greater versatility for all types of events.”

Sponsorship and donation opportunities are available. Gift contributions for the silent auction are also welcomed. Contact Fund Development at 908-580-3806 for more information.
