55 Kip Center's 2019 Fall Gala took place on October 4th at The Fiesta in Wood-Ridge. Special thanks go to this year's top Sponsors: Kearny Bank and BCB Bank who helped make this event a huge success.


With 175 guests and amazing raffle prizes, it was a fun filled event made more memorable with the help of our Silver Sponsors: Blue Foundry Bank, Shop-Rite/Inserra, and PIA (James Gardella) of Carlstadt.

Joe Zisa & Friends (sponsored by BCB Bank) entertained the guests with music that kept them smiling all night. Guests danced and sang along with the band. They played fabulous music from the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties.
