This year's 2nd Annual Hoboken Ball was a phenomenal success!
Thanks are due to David Roberts, Mayor of Hoboken and City officials and to all who attended this year's event - without their support this event would not be possible. It is the Hoboken Historical Museum's largest fundraiser and the monies raised will greatly benefit the educational and cultural activities that the Museum offers throughout the year. The Hoboken Ball has become the city's most popular and well-attended social event!
This event took place along the Hudson River on a site contributed by Danny Gans and George Vallone of Hoboken Brownstone. Site plans were provided by architect, Dean Marchetto. A giant tent along with three additional large tents held the band, party space and casino for the theme of "Hot Night in Havana." Jane Kizlauskas, chairperson, led a team of dedicated volunteers. Over 1000 people participated in this 2003 October event. A beautiful warm night allowed many guests to linger on the sandy beach. For the second year in a row, the 12-piece band "Joyride" played very danceable tunes that kept the crowd on the floor until 2 a.m.
The Ball Committee thanks all of our guests and sponsors whose contributions underwrite the work of the Hoboken Historical Museum. Plans are underway to bring this glorious black tie event back to New Jersey's Transit's Hoboken Terminal in 2004.
