Festive fundraiser celebrates 50 years of conservation

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE/ 11/01/10

New Jersey Conservation Foundation


New Jersey Conservation Foundation celebrated its 50th anniversary on Saturday, Oct. 30, at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum in Morristown. The gala fund-raiser netted about $230,000 to help the Foundation continue its mission of preserving natural areas, parks and farmland throughout New Jersey.



 



About 340 people attended, including four former governors: Thomas Kean, James Florio, Christine Todd Whitman and James McGreevey. Former New Jersey Network anchor Kent Manahan served as master of ceremonies, interviewing the former governors and presenting awards honoring them for their environmental legacies.



 



Former Congressman Peter H.B. Frelinghuysen was recognized for his pivotal role in establishing both the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge and New Jersey Conservation Foundation.



 



Other highlights of the evening included a live auction, a silent auction, the raffle of a 2011 Toyota Prius hybrid, and a cork pull.
