Gala Details

Location and Time

The Stonehouse at Stirling Ridge is located at 50 Stirling Rd, Warren, NJ 07059. Nestled on 10 acres in the Watchung Mountains, the Stone House at Stirling Ridge provides scenic countryside views in a contemporary setting. A Frank Lloyd Wright design inspiration: its steel, wood, and stone combination come together like a balanced wine. The Grand Ballroom at Stirling Ridge features 16’ ceilings and a series of glass doors and walls that open up to private gardens and fire pits. Doors open at 6 pm and the event ends at 10:00 pm.

Silent Auction

We have exciting offerings from Kalahari to Effy jewelry valued at $800! Bids can only be made in person. The highest bidder wins. The bidding ends at 9 pm. Prizes will be delivered to the winners between 9-9:15 pm.

Costume Contest

Each table host will be given a ballot to vote on the best dressed (male and female), the sharpest couple overall, and best shoes! Spectacular prizes will be given!

 

Music & Photography

We will have a live Jazz band and an awesome DJ! Also, we will have both a photo booth in the Grand Ballroom AND a photographer taking portraits on arrival (these will be for sale for $10 each). Most of the vendors helping at this event have been VERY gracious to us. Please thank them and support them in any way you can!
