Celebration Singers Annual Fundraiser & Dessert Cabaret! @ Union Elks Lodge 1583
Feb 7 @ 7:15 pm

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.

For ticket reservations visit: www.celebration-singers.org.  For questions or seating requests call 908-552-4656 or email [email protected].

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.

“Suitable For Framing: A Victorian Woman’s Place In Botanic Art & Illustration” @ Cranford Community Center
Feb 25 @ 7:00 pm
“Suitable For Framing: A Victorian Woman’s Place In Botanic Art & Illustration" @ Cranford Community Center

Please join the Hanson Park Conservancy on Tuesday, February 25th at 7:00 PM at the Cranford Community Center as we welcome back Garden Historian Lesley Parness for the presentation, “Suitable For Framing: A Victorian Woman’s Place In Botanic Art & Illustration.” When renowned British botanist John Lindley wrote Ladies’ Botany in 1834, he did so to block women from, not welcome them into, the academic world of horticulture. Learn how women figured it out anyway and managed to contribute to science, influence public taste and advance their own craft. The Victorian artists featured range from rebels to spinsters, suffragettes to missionary wives and are highlighted with strikingly beautiful imagery and humor. This engaging program is not to be missed!

Lesley Parness is the retired Superintendent of Horticultural Education at New Jersey’s Morris County Park Commission where she oversaw programming at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum, Willowwood Arboretum and Bamboo Brook Outdoor Education Center. She is a member of the Herb Society of America, The Council on Horticultural and Botanical Literature, and Garden State Gardens, a consortium of New Jersey’s public gardens of which she is a Founding Member.

The Cranford Community Center is located at 220 Walnut Ave. in Cranford, NJ. The program is free and open to the public. No registration is required, but seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. This presentation is sponsored by the Hanson Park Conservancy. To learn more please visit our website, www.hansonparkconservancy.com or like us on Facebook.

This history program is made possible in part by a HEART (History, Education, Arts Reaching Thousands) Grant from the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.

Sleep Out for Homeless Kids @ Calvary Tabernacle
May 8 @ 8:00 pm
Sleep Out for Homeless Kids @ Calvary Tabernacle | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

What is a Sleep Out?
Sleep Outs are events that help Covenant House raise awareness about the problem of youth homelessness while raising critical funds needed to continue caring for the more than 3,000 homeless kids that come to Covenant House New Jersey (CHNJ) each year in crisis.

By sleeping out with us, you are standing with us and our kids ensuring that we can continue to care for New Jersey’s homeless youth. Your fundraising efforts have a direct effect on the services that we provide.

Our work at CHNJ is funded primarily through private donations, enabling us to provide the best care possible. The more money we raise the more kids we can care for and the better the services we can provide to them.

We ask Sleep Out participants to raise critical funds that allow Covenant House New Jersey to offer safety, shelter, and support to homeless young people 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. By fundraising, Sleep Out participants become part of the solution for homeless teenagers.
