You are cordially invited to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Allies in Caring, AIC, and our partnership with Pinelands Preservation Alliance, PPA, at the AIC Gala Fundraiser that will take place at the beautiful Bishop Farmstead Southampton, NJ, on September 9, 2022 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Join us for a joyful evening of giving and community connection to celebrate Allies in Caring (AIC) and the Pinelands Preservation Alliance’s (PPA) collaboration to benefit health, wellness, and nature.

We have been working together to expand our reach beyond what people typically think of as an “environmental” concern or a “social service” issue. We share a belief that enjoying natural places is good for everyone’s physical and mental health.

Your contribution will help AIC and PPA offer a Pinelands Summer Camp for Hammonton teenagers, as well as support programs at AIC’s flagship Con-Vivir Wellness Hub such as Computer Literacy and American Sign Language classes, the Youth Career Support Workshop, and our Affordable Counseling Services. So, join the celebration and help us expand the circle of care into a new decade of building the beloved community.

Cocktail reception, hearty appetizers, and large silent auction with items from the Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Union, Lululemon, wine baskets, Aveda, North Face, Pinelands Adventures, Rancocas Creek Farm and so much more.

Tickets are $100 (1 ticket) or $175 (2 tickets). To purchase tickets, please visit Business attire. For more information, contact or (609) 878-2007 or visit


The Bishop Farmstead is located at 17 Pemberton Rd, Southampton Township, NJ 08088.
