tickets to attend the SOPAC Gala in person!
As SOPAC’s largest fundraising event of the year,
participation in our Gala raises critical funds for both arts
education programs and operating support. While
SOPAC's lobby and mainstage are under renovation due to damage caused
by Hurricane Ida, the Gala will be held at Drew University, 36
Madison Ave, Madison, NJ 07940.
The SOPAC Gala will be hosted by
local comedian and host of SOPAC's Laughs in the Loft series, Joe
Larson. SOPAC will honor Diana Hart, former SOPAC Board
member and owner of Diana Hart Fine Catering, and present a Lifetime
Achievement Award to John Lee, Grammy-winning producer
and Jazz All-Star. Entertainment will be provided by five-time Grammy
Award nominee Michael Feinstein, performing the music of
the Great American Songbook.
All in-person tickets include the Award Presentation
and Entertainment at 8PM as well as a choice of either attending the
pre-show Cocktail Reception at 6PM OR picking up a Catered
Takeout Meal from our local business network partner, Bistro d'Azur.
Virtual tickets are also available for purchase! All virtual tickets include a personal link
to view the livestream of the Award Presentation and Entertainment at
8PM. If you're selecting the Catered Takeout Meal
