20th Annual Friends of Connetquot Gala Celebration

Monday, November 5, 2018 - 6:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.

Friends of Connetquot Cordially Invites you to join us at our 2018 Gala Celebration

The Friends of Connetquot cordially invites you to join us for an evening honoring the memory of Gil Bergen. Our 21st Annual Gala will be an evening of sharing memories of the longest serving Park Manager at Connetquot River State Park Preserve. Details and registration will be enclosed within our upcoming newsletter. Please RSVP as soon as possible.

The Gala is our main fundraising event each year but this year we are hoping to raise enough money for a Memorial to Gil. We intend to purchase a large boulder and brass plaque to be erected where everyone can see it at the Park. We would love to have your memory of Gil shared by purchasing an ad in the Journal and placing your thoughts and memories about Gil in the Journal.

An entertaining and enjoyable evening is planned, and we are counting on you to join us in celebrating and reminiscing the past while we dedicate the evening to Gil. We also plan on showing some wonderful videos of Gil talking about his history with the Park.

Dinner, dancing, open bar and Chinese auctions.

Reservations must be purchased no later than October 28th.  We look forward to seeing you at the Gala!

As the Gala approaches, more information will be posted. Please subscribe to our email list and/or like us on Facebook for updates on this and other events.
