 April 1 – Craft Beer Fest

It’s no April Fool’s joke. A beautiful greenhouse on the oldest farm in Franklin Township is the site for our 3rd annual Craft Beer Festival (aka BeerFest). Throw in music, craft beer, food and it is a seriously good time. But you’d better hop to it because seats are limited and go quickly.

April 30 – Tour de Franklin

The Tour de Franklin is our largest and most successful fundraising event. This April 30th, the Tour will celebrate 28 years of fun. Last year 800 people gathered at our new location, Franklin High School, to help raise $80,000 for the Food Bank!

The Tour consists of seven organized walks/rides through scenic Franklin Township. Participants can choose the event that best suits them and are encouraged to get sponsors to help raise money for the Food Bank. Pre-ride breakfast is served and lunch and festivities follow the rides at Franklin High School.

July 17 –    Golf fore Groceries

If you can only play in one golf outing this year, make it the 4th Annual Golf fore Groceries hosted by The Palace at Somerset Park. We’ll be back on the greens at Royce Brook Golf Club’s exclusive West Course again this July 17th. The course is ranked among Golf Digest’s Top 20 Golf Courses – private and public – in the state of New Jersey, and has received the coveted “Four Stars” as well.

Following golf, The Palace will once again host the award banquet in true Palace style. Guests are greeted at the door with specialty cocktails, a bountiful cocktail reception followed by a delicious dinner await. Don’t forget to check out all of the Silent Auction prizes. You don’t have to play (or even like) golf to join us for the dinner. You just have to like delicious food and having a great evening!!!
