FEST 2018 – A Resounding Success

On behalf of our Board of Trustees, FEST Committee and the Watershed staff, thank you for making the FEST 2018: Passport to Cuba the most successful ever.

About 270 festgoers celebrated the culture, music and food of Old Havana at the Watershed’s 43rd annual FEST.

Guests bid on silent auction items that included fine artwork, jewelry and chocolate as well as dozens of experiences ranging from a Vermont weekend to breakfast at Tiffany’s in NYC.

 

The evening featured a Cuban-themed dinner, cocktails, desserts and an array of specialty coffees. Many couples enjoyed dancing to music played by the Tren Latino Band inside the LEED-Platinum Watershed Center.

Proceeds from many generous individual and corporate sponsors, as well as private donations, support the Watershed’s mission to protect and restore clean water and healthy habitats in central New Jersey.

 

We thank FEST committee chairs Sandra Allen, Carrie Dyckman, Lindsay Bracken and Jennifer Staikos and corporate sponsors PNC, Bloomberg, Bristol-Myers Squibb, PSE&G, Glenmede, Bryn Mawr Trust, NRG, Callaway Henderson Sotheby’s International Realty, Ragone Lacatena Fairchild Beppel Accountants and Advisors, Princeton Air, Fort Washington Corporate Benefit Services, UBS, Farewell Architects LLC, Zubatkin Owner Representation LLC,  and Patricia’s Hair Design.

This gala evening supports The Watershed Institute’s mission to protect and restore clean water and healthy habitats in beautiful Central New Jersey.
