Each time that I meet with a buyer who is interested in purchasing a home in the Millburn-Short Hills, NJ area, one question that I hear frequently is, “How community-oriented is this town? Are the people warm, friendly and supportive?” Picking a location that suits the needs of your family is nearly as important as finding the perfect home, and so it’s understandable that before deciding to look at the many homes on the market in Millburn-Short Hills, that they would feel the need to find out how family-friendly the area is. As a Millburn-Short Hills real estate agent, I am always very honest when I hear this question: the answer is yes; of course we are community-oriented and supportive of one another!
Part of the reason that I keep myself in the know about the local happenings in the Millburn-Short Hills area is because when I start telling potential home buyers what a great community I live in, having specific examples to back up my argument helps. This winter, I am proud to say that there are several events happening that are not only fun, but beneficial to the community. In the interest of helping us be the supportive and giving neighborhood that people are looking for when they decide to relocate to Millburn-Short Hills, I thought I’d outline a few upcoming events that will prove to be both fun and rewarding.
“Come Together” Gala
Saturday, February 4th
Hilton Short Hills
41 John F. Kennedy Pkwy, Short Hills, NJ
The word “gala” typically conjures images of dinner, dancing and awards, and this celebration, being thrown by the Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce, is no exception. You can enjoy an evening of dining and celebration while participating in auctions that will benefit not-for-profit organizations in the area. Twelve of these local organizations will be honored with a “Major Not-for-Profit Serving our Community and Beyond Award.” The best part is that you can choose which of the organizations you want to support, and the Chamber will deduct 30% of the cost of your ticket and give it to that charity. Tickets are $100 per person, or if you have a large group, $950 for a table of ten. It’s bound to be a great evening, and it’s another fabulous way to show support for the community.
Senior Celebration Dinner and Fashion Show 2012
Wednesday, February 8th
307 W. Northfield Road, Livingston, NJ
There’s nothing quite like celebrating the talent of the high school kids in our area. All members of the Millburn-Short Hills community are invited to an evening of dining and fashion featuring our very own Millburn High School seniors as the runway models. Tickets are only $75, and the proceeds will benefit the Senior Celebration and the community’s efforts to keep graduation activities fun and safe for all students. It’s something that’s a little different, and let’s be honest: it will be fun seeing those high school students strut their stuff on the runway!
Chamber Music & Chocolates
Sunday, February 12th
Far Brook School
52 Great Hills Road, Millburn, NJ
If you haven’t already made Valentine’s Day plans, this local music event may be a great option! Not only will you enjoy wonderful chamber music played by some of the school’s faculty, but you’ll also get to enjoy some savory chocolate treats. There are a few distinguished guests, as well, including the star of the 1994 Broadway Revival of Showboat Andre Solomon-Glover. At only $20 per suggested contribution, this interesting and fun-filled event will benefit the Far Brook School Music Department’s Music & Instrument Fund.
Not only are these events going to provide fond memories, they will also help benefit several organizations that are important to our community. Whether you enjoy fashion, music or lavish galas, something on this list is likely to pique your interest. As a Millburn-Short Hills real estate agent, I consider it part of my responsibility to publicize these events and bring our community together. That way, when a home buyer interested in relocating to Millburn-Short Hills asks me to describe the community; I can use these events as examples of our area’s character.
If you have any questions about living in Millburn-Short Hills or want to find out more about these events, don’t hesitate to contact me! I’d be happy to provide you with any and all answers to your questions. I hope to hear from you soon!
