Night In Suffrage White

Saturday, August 25, 2018
5pm – 8pm
Alice Paul Institute
128 Hooten Rd., Mount Laurel, NJ 08054

Gather your friends and join the staff of the Alice Paul Institute for a special pop-up dinner to celebrate the date that women were granted the right to vote! The observance of Women’s Equality Day not only commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, but it also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality. API is proud to host this elegant evening to raise funds for its leadership programs for teen girls and for our continued advocacy for the passage of the Equal Rights Act.

White is the color of the event! In honor of the many suffragists who wore white in their fight to gain the right to vote, every guest is highly-encouraged to wear all white and decorate their table in white linens. In true pop-up fashion, this event operates on a “pack it in/pack it out” philosophy. Every group must bring all their supplies (tables, chairs, food, flatware, linens, etc.) and take everything home with them, including trash.

Spots can be secured for groups of 4, 6, 8, 10, or 12.

The first 50 guests registered are guaranteed a spot on Paulsdale’s beautiful wrap-around porch!

 Only $10 per person! Tickets on sale in July 2018.
