It’s being described as a “first of its kind” event for the Shrewsbury Chorale — one that’s got the members of the Lincroft-based vocal ensemble under the baton of Anthony La Gruth “buzzing with excitement.”

It’s a special “Gershwin and Gifts Gala” fundraiser that will crown the Chorale’s 2013-2014 season with an auction of unique gift items, plus catered cuisine by Red Bank’s Buona Sera Ristorante — and, as the name suggests, the music of the great American master George Gershwin.

Hosted at St. George Greek Orthodox Church on West Park Avenue in Ocean Township, the gala begins at 5:30 pm on Tuesday, June 10. Admission price of $50 per person includes dinner, the special musical performance of Gershwin songbook standards, and a chance to bid on prizes that include sports memorabilia, handcrafted jewelry and other wares by local artisans. To purchase tickets and make advance reservations, call (732)513-8413.
