The Delaware River Mill Society’s annual Progressive Dinner, a cherished rite of spring that provides a significant portion of the annual support for maintaining the Prallsville Mills complex along the Delaware River in Stockton, N.J., has been postponed from April 4 until June 20, due to the coronavirus.
The dinner begins at 5 p.m. Saturday, June 20, with a cocktail party at the Grist Mill, the key building in the Prallsville Mills complex. At 7:30 p.m., phase two begins as attendees move to supporter’s homes for dinners.
Tickets are $175 a person for the whole affair, or $100 a person for cocktails and auction only and can be purchased at prallsvillemills.org.
“The Progressive Dinner is our annual celebration of spring,” said Elizabeth Japchen, executive director of the Delaware River Mill Society, which operates the complex. “We encourage our neighbors along the Delaware River towns to join us as we celebrate Prallsville Mills and their part of our history and ongoing community life.”
In the opening cocktail party, attendees can enjoy a signature cocktail, open bar and hors d’oeuvres and have the opportunity to bid on dozens of items donated by area businesses and artists for a silent and live auction. Items include overnight stays at some of the area’s finest bed and breakfasts, handmade jewelry, live edge wood work and many luxury experiences.
Supporters of the dinner include Thompson Lexus, the Black Bass Hotel and Lumberville General Store, ShopRite of Flemington, Wells Fargo Advisers, Finkles, The Stockton Market, River Valley Realty, Rago Auction House, Sergeantsville Feed and Grain, Borden Perlman, Ananta Creative Group, and Animal Alliance.
Supporters will be provided with notice of any future date changes, if required.
