The event will feature a cocktail reception, dinner, dancing to the music of the Tom Costello Orchestra, a silent auction and entertainment featuring MPAC’s Performing Arts Company. “We are looking forward to celebrating with you in person as we raise critical funds for the theatre that is the heart of Morristown!” McLaughlin said.
