Toast and Roast Honoring Bill O'Dea



Serious fundraising with a hilarious twist!


The Institute of Music for Children is pleased to honor Hudson County Commissioner Bill O’Dea, of the Elizabeth Development Company, at our upcoming fundraiser on June 15th.

The event will feature:

  • Staged reading of Bill’s original works, featuring parts written specifically for our elected officials
  • A Roast of Bill O’Dea emceed by Mayor J. Christian Bollwage
  • Performances by Institute students and Faculty
  • Gourmet Dinner with Open Bar

Bill’s support for the Institute's Arts Campus Expansion Project has helped to bring our vision of a state-of-the-art urban arts education center within reach. This project will deepen our impact and expand our footprint, impacting thousands of children and families each year. The Institute is only one of hundreds of organizations that have benefitted from Bill’s involvement and his generosity is an inspiration to us all. 

This is a great opportunity for the community to recognize his lifelong service.
