Spirit of Jane Rodney Gala

On May 10, we were once again proud and honored to be the official caterer, and a sponsor, of the Jane Rodney Gala from the Susan G Komen Foundation. And, with over 20 tables to feed, we were thrilled to feed the guests and sponsors of this worth-while charity.

This was the 11th annual event and is sponsored by the Susan G Komen affiliate of Central & South Jersey. This year a new venue was chosen: the historic Trenton War Memorial. The Spirit of Jane Rodney Celebration remembers their late founder, Jane Rodney while honoring community leaders who shared her dedication to the fight against breast cancer.

Jane worked at the Breast Cancer Resource Center and brought the Race for the Cure to New Jersey in 1994. She inspired others to take action and many of their volunteers and supporters worked with Jane for many years. While Jane lost her own battle with breast cancer in 2002, her work lives on.

Here’s what Monica Smith, Director of Development of the Susan G Komen of Central and South Jersey chapter had to say about the event:

Guests walk the “pink” carpet to enter. The event continues with an amazing silent Room Set upauction, great music, and sit down dinner.

Exquisite Caterers was one of the sponsors, along with Bristol-Myers Squibb, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, Navigant, St. Peter’s Healthcare System. 

Exquisite Caterers has been a sponsor for several years.
