Annual Gala

Each spring, SMGF hosts a gala to bring together our community for a night of cocktails, culinary delicacies, star-studded entertainment and fundraising.

In 2018, over 800 people gathered at The Grove in Cedar Grove, NJ, determined to set a fundraising record. Attendees at the SMGF Annual Gala raised a whopping $1.35 million to benefit local underserved communities.

The blockbuster evening was hosted by Seth Meyers of NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” Helping up the ante again was celebrity auctioneer Paul Zekos, who enthusiastically auctioned off unique VIP experiences and incredible trips during the live auction.

The SMGF annual gala is the organization’s largest fundraising effort, providing needed money to offer free year-round health screenings, mentoring programs and scholarships to students studying in healthcare-related fields. In 2019, SMGF hopes to raise even more money by continuing to break fundraising records and providing needed health care services in our local community.
