From Grow It Green Morristown:
Grow It Green Morristown Honors Kings Food Market and Longtime Volunteer
Presentations will be made at the 5th Annual Diamonds for Kale Gala on Saturday, April 22nd
Grow It Green Morristown, a nonprofit focused on making fresh, local food and outdoor spaces accessible for all, announces its 5th Annual Fundraising Gala, Diamonds for Kale, on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, 2017.
This year’s gala will honor Corporate Partner of the Year, Kings Food Market. Aligned in mission, Kings Food Market, through its Act Against Hunger Initiative, continues to deliver on its core value of serving local communities in the fight to end hunger and has been a strategic partner for Grow It Green Morristown for many years.
The event will also honor Nicole Fletcher with the Volunteer of the Year Award. Nicole, a Morristown resident, has contributed countless volunteer hours at the Urban Farm and Early Street Community Garden, tending to the herb gardens and flower beds, as well as actively volunteering at Grow It Green Morristown’s fall family festival, Alfresco at the Farm.
The fun-filled evening will feature local, seasonally-inspired light fare, courtesy of Ome Caterers, as well as organic or sustainable wines from Cambridge Wines, local craft brewed beer from Man Skirt Brewing, and signature cocktails featuring vodka from local Claremont Distillery.
Guests will enjoy live jazz music by the Copacetic Clams, dancing and watching our caricature artist, My Funny Side, work magic on paper.
There will also be a lively silent auction featuring unique offerings from local businesses and a tricky tray. Each guest will also take home a ‘green’ swag bag courtesy of event sponsors.
“The gala is a wonderful event that brings together our community to reflect and celebrate our accomplishments, honor those who have contributed to our successes, as well as look ahead and continue moving our mission forward,” says Alice Cutler, gala co-chair and Grow It Green Morristown vice president.
Funds raised from the gala will go to support Grow It Green Morristown’s work to bring farm-based educational programs to students and adults in the greater Morristown community and make fresh, local food and outdoor spaces accessible to all.
The event will be held at The Kellogg Club, located at 25 Colles Ave., Morristown, from 7-10 p.m.
Tickets are $125 per person and are on sale now at www.growitgreenmorristown.org/diamondsforkale. Gala program ad opportunities are available by emailing here. The gala is sold out!
