“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”  -- F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

SUMMIT, NJ - The Connection has moved its annual fundraising event to autumn, with a re-imagined soirée entitled 'Give Like Gatsby Gala' roaring into the Hilltop City on November 16, beginning at 7 p.m., at the Canoe Brook Country Club. All proceeds benefit The Connection's Community Service and Scholarship Fund.

With a nod to the Prohibition-era theme, attendees will begin the evening with craft Summit House cocktails setting the speakeasy tone for the event.

Guests will enjoy the Gala committee’s artfully-curated silent auction and have the chance at winning glitz and glamour in Bloomingdale’s key raffle. The committee has partnered with Propeller Communications to showcase The Connection's programs, benefits, and services. The celebration of community will continue at Summit House with a VIP after-party with limited complimentary entry tickets available to Gala attendees.

The event affords Connection members, and those who participate in its programs or support its services, to work together to strengthen their shared community and become an essential part of its collective success.
