If you’ve wondered about those “I remember…” collection boxes that you may have noticed at select businesses throughout Red Bank, they’ve got a story to tell — or rather, they’ve been placed there to collect the stories that you and your neighbors have to tell.
On Tuesday, November 29, a number of those collected memories and stories will be read, live and out loud, by a collection of local VIPs, creative artists and people from all walks of community life, during a special Night to Remember benefit event hosted at Two River Theater.
Scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., the event represents the first annual fundraiser for Project Write Now, the nonprofit writing workshop for children, teens and adults located right next door to the theater at 25 Bridge Avenue.
Spotlighted at the event will be a live performance of “I remember…” contributions, translated into spoken word (and in some cases, music) by featured participants that include bandleader/businessman Brian Kirk, writer and educator Gilda Rogers, plus Gary Philips, Paul DiDario, Mychal Mills and more.
Photography and art by Jenifer Rutherford, Holly Suzanne Rader, Kerri Sullivan and Steve Scanlon will be on display, and attendees can sample and savor a selection of food, drink and desserts by chefs from Ama Ristorante, B2 Bistro, Danish Cafe, Raven And The Peach, Danny’s Steakhouse, Booskerdoo Coffee and Bakery, The Vintage Cake, Purity Vodka and more.
There’s still time to reserve tickets ($128) for Tuesday evening’s event here — and, for a $20 option, you can enter for a chance to win a Make More Memories basket worth close to $1,000. All proceeds will help fund the educational programs offered by Project Write Now.
