State Theatre New Jersey will host a Women’s Tea Luncheon on Wednesday, March 14, 2018, to raise funds for State Theatre New Jersey’s arts access initiatives. The event, which is a celebration for Women’s History Month, includes a networking hour and special program on the stage of the historic venue.
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, State Theatre New Jersey is committed to giving back to the community, providing $730,000 worth of free and heavily-subsidized admissions for mainstage and educational programs annually. Nearly 60,000 underserved individuals statewide benefit — including students from low-income schools, veterans, children on the autism spectrum, seniors, charities and local families. KPMG and PNC are among the sponsors of the Women’s Tea, which will provide crucial support for all of these arts access initiatives at State Theatre New Jersey.
“Approaching its centennial in 2021, State Theatre New Jersey has an exciting vision for ensuring that the powerful impact of the arts continues to be accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds,” said Wendy Wiebalk, State Theatre New Jersey trustee, certified trial attorney and partner at Cahn & Parra LLC, and Women’s Tea Committee Member.
