Gala to Benefit Woodlands Wildlife Refuge


Woodlands Wildlife Refuge will host its 20th Annual Spring for Wildlife Gala on Friday, April 7, 2017 from 6:30pm–10:30pm. The organization’s largest fundraising event will be held at Hunterdon Hills Playhouse in Union Township. Proceeds benefit Woodlands Wildlife Refuge, a charitable organization dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of New Jersey’s orphaned and injured wildlife and educating the public about wild animal habits and habitats since 1986.

Get jazzed for spring with live entertainment by Dave Antonow Band with Kerry Blue – contemporary jazz and pop. Get psyched and experience the mysterious mind of mentalist Ted St. James,  a fun and amazing interactive mentalism presentation. Ted has been spellbinding audiences for over 20 years with demonstrations of ESP, psychology and memory. His performances always amaze, amuse, and delight even the most skeptical observers. He has performed for colleges, comedy clubs, and Fortune 500 companies all across the country.

In addition, VIP guests will automatically be entered into an exclusive drawing for: a VIP ticket to Spring for Wildlife 2018, Woodlands T-shirt and $15 of Tricky Tray tickets.  The evening’s festivities will include a four course dinner, raffles, and as always a fabulous selection of Silent Auction and Tricky Tray auction items.
