( Eastern Produce Council )

The Eastern Produce Council will host the John J. McAleavey Annual Gala on April 6, at the Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park, N.J.

McAleavey was the council’s executive director for 25 years. After his death in 2015, the event was named in his memory. This will be the council’s 53rd annual gala.

While the venue remains the same, the format of the night is changing. The ballroom, traditionally set for a sit-down dinner, will be transformed into a casino.  There will be an extended cocktail hour and dinner buffet from 7-9 p.m., with the casino opening its doors at 8 p.m. Guests can enjoy a DJ, photo booth and desserts.
