Great Swamp Gala & Silent Auction 2018

October 11, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Brooklake Country Club

GSWA is thrilled to honor former New Jersey Governor, Thomas Kean, at our 2018 Gala & Silent Auction, held at the Brooklake Country Club in Florham Park.

Governor Kean remains to this day one of the most popular governors in New Jersey history. We are honoring the governor for his environmental leadership during his administration for enacting landmark protections for New Jersey’s shoreline and freshwater wetlands.

Following his gubernatorial role, Gov. Kean built an accomplished career; he served as president of Drew University, in 1997 was appointed as an Advisory Board member of President Clinton’s One America Initiative, and in 2002, as Chairman of the 9/11 Commission.

Meet Tom Kean at the private pre-Gala VIP Cocktail Reception, 5:00 – 6:00 PM.  Purchase a “Premier Reservation with VIP Pass” to mingle with some of our most distinguished guests and enjoy gourmet cocktails and hors d’oeuvres prior to the start of the Gala.  


Our annual Gala & Silent Auction is our biggest and most exciting fundraising event of the year!

The evening will include a lively cocktail hour, a delicious dinner banquet, an expansive silent auction, and remarks delivered by Governor Kean.

For underwriting opportunities, or to place an ad in our silent auction program which will be viewed by over 400 community leaders, business people, local residents, and political figures, please call Debbie Rice at 973-538-3500, or email DRice@greatswamp.org.
