Liberty Hall Museum at Kean University to Host New Jersey Governors' Ball 5/3
Come celebrate New Jersey history as Liberty Hall Museum at Kean University hosts its second Governors' Ball on Wednesday, May 3, to benefit educational and other programming at the museum. This year's theme is Alexander Hamilton. Liberty Hall, home of the first elected Governor of New Jersey and signer of the Constitution, William Livingston, was also Hamilton's home while he attended school in New Jersey.
The Governors' Ball is an evening of dinner and dancing under the stars on the Liberty Hall grounds. Guests will stroll the 12 acres of beautiful formal gardens and manicured grounds, feast on a fabulous menu and dance to the music of the Irv Cuttler Orchestra. All of New Jersey's living governors, past and present, have been invited, and many will be in attendance. Guests will have the opportunity to host a table with a governor.
During cocktails, guests can visit the traveling exhibit, Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made America, and during dinner, entertainment will be provided by local students, including singers from the Kean University Theatre Conservatory and dancers from Broadway Dance Theatre in Union. Songs from the Broadway hit, Hamilton: The Musical, will be featured.
Additionally, guests will enjoy a toast of Madeira wine, just as Hamilton and Livingston would have done, a gift from Mannie Berk, president of Rare Wine Co. The Governors' Ball will be an evening where donors and their guests can enjoy and take pride in all that has made New Jersey great throughout the centuries.
