Become a Member – 2022 Ross Farm Band of Friends

Posted by on April 3, 2022

2022 marks the eighth season of live music at the Ross Farm. Following our very successful campaign to raise funds for our new stage, we are happy to bring back our Band of Friends program. All of our musicians and sound technicians are paid with donations; any extra funds benefit various activities of the Friends of the Boudinot-Southard-Ross Estate.

The suggested donation for most of our concerts will be $25, but a donation of $125 for the Band of Friends membership covers one person for each of the six concerts on our schedule this year, including the two that will be ticketed events rather than by donation. Band of Friends members are automatically registered for each concert in 2022. Note, if you would like to donate for more than one membership, adjust the amount according to how many you want and there will be a field on the order form to enter the number of memberships you are requesting.

In addition to our very popular music series, FoBSR hosts students on field trips, opens the 60-acre historic property to the local arts group ARTsee for their spring and fall events, assists Trilogy Repertory with their annual Halloween drive-thru, and more. For the past two years we have created a holiday lights drive-thru that resulted in $28,000 in donations to the NJ Elks Veterans Welcome Home Kit project. A true gem on the property is Boudinot’s Giving Garden, lovingly tended by a group of volunteers, with all the produce going to local soup kitchens, food pantries and veterans. We our very proud of the spirit of volunteerism that is at the heart of everything we do. Every donation helps! If you would prefer to write a check, please make it out to FoBSR and mail to Nola Hansen, 47 E. Oak St., Basking Ridge, NJ 07920.
