Arts & Eats for Justice 2017 Sponsors

Our Wine Pull is back by popular demand!




At Arts & Eats for Justice, we will have 100 wine and champagne bottles on display in the main reception room. Guests can purchase a numbered wine cork for $25 apiece. Every cork in the pull matches a bottle of wine on display, and will entitle you to a bottle worth a minimum of $30.

Everyone's a winner!



We’ve partnered up with Angelbeck’s Wine in Montclair to purchase bottles of wine for the 2017 Arts & Eats for Justice Gala. Simply call the Angelbeck’s team at (973) 744-1375, or visit them at 621 Valley Road in Upper Montclair or online at They can help you select a bottle to donate or make a selection on your behalf if you prefer!

If you have bottles of wine at any price point above $30 that you would like to donate, we are happy to arrange a pick up or you can deliver them to VLJ’s office located at Four Gateway Center, 100 Mulberry Street, 6th Floor, Newark, NJ 07102.

If you prefer not to shop, call Emily Balan at (973) 645-1951 ext. 115, or email, who will arrange the donation for you.
