Fall Fundraiser at The Franklin

Updated: Sep 21, 2019

-- SOLD OUT --

What most people don't realize about not-for-profits is that we subsist not only on donations and grants, but purchases of memberships, swag, and event tickets- donations alone rarely cut it and granting foundations generally don't support operating costs. Especially not for small organizations like ours which run entirely on volunteers. We only have one big fundraiser per year to cover our insurance costs so that we may ensure the Reservoir is open more often. Your support attending our event or donating in lieu of attendance makes everything we do possible.

Please join us for an evening of food & fun!

VIP Hour 6 - 7 pm Dinner 7 - 10 pm

159 New York Avenue, Jersey City, NJ 07307
