2018 SOPAC Gala

We celebrated “New Jersey’s Favorite Small Performing Arts Center” at the annual SOPAC Gala on Saturday, October 27, 2018.  It was a fabulous night of deserving honorees, cocktails, a strolling dinner & dessert, live & silent auctions and entertainment.

At this special event, we honored Juilliard @ SOPAC series sponsor, Samuel M. Convissor, longtime SOPAC supporters, Dan Arrighi & Sam Joseph, and music legend and activist, Dionne Warwick. SOPAC presented Ms. Warwick with a Lifetime Achievement Award. The evening’s entertainment featured Grammy Award-winning Singer-Songwriter Judy Collins.

Special thanks to our proud sponsors and to the Gala Host Committee for their help in ensuring the success of our fundraiser.
