#1 INAUGURAL GALA PHOTOS: GETTING READY
We were happy about how the Jersey-themed decorations had come together an hour before curtain time!
The Garden State Inaugural Gala was over a year in the making, from the time we signed up the B-Street Band in July of 2011 until the first guest walked down the stairs at 7:30 pm on January 20, 2013. This set of photos will give you a peek at the preparations for the gala shortly before the guests arrived! Photos of the gala itself are on the second link.
We thank all our volunteers, board members, NJ State Society members, the Washington Court Hotel, the B-Street Band, our silent auction contributors, sponsors, guests and vendors, for enabling us to host this wonderful evening. Special thanks to the volunteer photographers who sent us these pictures: Greg Dukes, Chuck Divine, Kevin Horahan, Steve Oriol and Jin Blades.
