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–an extraordinary vantage point! We begin with a networking reception and festive silent auction of must-have items followed by a healthy and delicious lunch before the panel discussion led by author Grace Bonney.

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!).
