Old – ‘Ox’tion Gala


Featuring the talents of local culinary artists, performers and artists in a uniquely creative space, the ‘Ox’tion Gala will be a night not to be missed. Fittingly presented at Grounds for Sculpture, a sculpture park formerly the heart of our agricultural heritage as the New Jersey State Fairgrounds and the vision of Hopewell Valley’s own Seward Johnson, this event will feature food, fun, and oxen!

If you have your sights set on one of the eleven ‘oxceptional’ oxen that have been selected for the live auction, then you will want to join us. If you just love a night of creative fun, this is a place you’ll want to be!

Attire: creative black tie!

Dinner: catered by Rats Restaurant.
