NEWTON – With an abundance of natural light and impressive atriums, an 800-seat cafeteria and an industrial-sized kitchen, Morris Crossroads Corporate Center is the perfect location for this year’s An Evening of Wine & Roses.
“You can’t beat it in terms of functionality and aesthetics,” Newton Memorial Hospital Vice President of Development Megan Sandow said. “As the popularity and attendance of this event grows each year, it becomes increasingly important that we find venues which are easily accessible and can handle the capacity.”
Morris County Crossroads Corporate Center is located in Mt. Olive, Morris County, and is easily accessible from Interstate Route 80 as well as State Routes 46 and 206. The facility is located only 13 miles from Newton Memorial Hospital’s Main Campus.
“Another advantage to changing the location is to give more restaurants from southern Sussex County and even Morris County an opportunity to join us this year and share their delicacies with attendees, which typically top 700 every year,” Sandow added. “It’s a great way for restaurants to highlight to a new audience what sets them apart from the competition.”
Sponsored by RoNetco Supermarkets, this year’s An Evening of Wine & Roses will be held March 25 and will once again include a yet-to-be-named celebrity chef as the featured guest of the exclusive VIP Wine & Roses package.
The evening is largely considered the region’s premiere social event with a number of unique highlights, including the world’s best-tasting wines and spirits as well as food from the region’s finest restaurants. It also includes opportunities to win a variety of prizes, including a trip for two to San Francisco and a $1,000-per-ticket contest to win a Mercedes E350C, one of the event’s most entertaining aspects.
All proceeds raised from the event will benefit the 2010 Annual Giving Program which supports capital equipment, technology, programs and services at Newton Memorial Hospital. Other major sponsors include, Champagne Grand Event Sponsor, The Selective Group Foundation as well as Bordeaux Sponsors, Cohn Benefit Consultants and T.A. Mountford, Co.
So save the date, March 25, and call the Newton Memorial Hospital Foundation office at 973.579.8309 for more information, including sponsor and vendor opportunities. Tickets cost $125 per person; VIP-room tickets are $200 per person or $350 per couple.
