Community Choir Holds Annual Tricky Tray Fundraiser & Dessert Cabaret
For 81 years, The Celebration Singers, a local multi-generational community choir has entertained audiences within Union County and across the globe. On February 7 & 8, 2020, they will hold their Annual Tricky Tray Fundraiser & Dessert Cabaret at Union Elks Lodge 1583, 281 Chestnut Street in Union, NJ. Doors open at 7:15 p.m. and guests can immediately start placing their tricky tray tickets in for the prizes. The show, “Are We There Yet?”, begins around 8 p.m. and features songs about places performed by members of its adult choir.
Artistic Director Joe Elefante, along with Collaborative Pianist, James Lubrano artfully cast the showcase which features a musical review of solos, duets, trios, as well as small and full ensemble pieces. Co-Hosts Kathy Gordon and Daniel Frieri emcee the evening. Their witty humor and playful banter are sure to bring a smile to your face and fill the room with laughter and enjoyment.
“I love singing with the choir throughout the year, especially for our Cabaret – it’s a chance to feature our singers’ vocal talents individually”, said, President Nicole Pepe. “The tricky tray and 50/50 gets bigger and bigger every year. We’ve had guests leave with $1,000+ in their pockets and vacations to Florida, the Hamptons, and even tickets to a Knicks game!”
In addition to door prizes, a 50/50 raffle and exciting tricky tray baskets, homemade desserts, and a cash bar will also be available. Tickets are Adults – $25, Seniors – $20, and a 10% discount with advanced purchases of full tables of 10.
Funding for the Celebration Singers is made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council for the Arts, Department of State, through a grant administered by the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs.
