New Jersey Ballet celebrates the life and legacy of Brendan Byrne, who served as

 governor from 1974-1982.  He was an ardent supporter of the arts statewide.

His generous spirit and quick humor will be dearly missed.

The evening will begin at 6:00pm with a cocktail hour and silent auction,

followed by a dinner in the elegant Grand Ballroom with a private performance

by New Jersey Ballet Company.


Your support helps ensure New Jersey continues to have a first-class ballet company
