About the Event:

An annual favorite, the Spring Luncheon & Auction is a truly unique event hosting over 500 prominent and high profile women business leaders and philanthropists from the NJ metro area onstage for lunch in Prudential Hall. We begin with a networking reception and festive silent auction of must-have items followed by a healthy and delicious lunch before the program.

And of course, we’ll also enjoy a performance from students enrolled in NJPAC’s Arts Education program! Plus, the raffle drawing (need not be present to win!).

The Ronnie Goldberg Award 2018:

For her “Outstanding Contributions to the Women’s Association and NJPAC,” The Ronnie Goldberg Award 2018 will be given to Audrey Bartner.
