Hidden Pond Farm's First Annual BB-62 Fundraiser
Hidden Pond Farm’s First Annual BB-62 Fundraiser


We would like to invite you to our first annual fundraiser for the Battleship New Jersey. This naval artifact is the most decorated vessel in the history of the US Navy. Did you know that it costs more than $10,000 a day to maintain the Battleship and Museum? And with your help we can go a long way toward raising that amount at this event. Jack Willard, CEO of the Battleship NJ and Museum, along with Curator Ryan Szimanski will both be in attendance to thank you personally for your support.

The gates for this ticketed event will open at 6:45 p.m. At approximately 8:00 p.m. pilots from the Jersey Jerks will conduct a series of flyovers in two WWII era North American SNJ-5 Navy trainer planes. Entertainment will be provided all evening by musician and pianist, Dale Bierman an Airforce Combat Veteran who performs here regularly. And Hands Down BBQ will be serving up some of the best barbeque in South Jersey. Vince Hand, the owner of Hands Down has also graciously offered to donate 10% of all sales to the cause. Master Carpenter Jim Guarrera will also be onsite. Jim is the carpenter that has turned salvaged teak from the Battlehip New Jersey into Display cases for our BB62 Battleship NJ Honey Falvored Rum as well as Burial Flag and Sword Display Cases, along with Picture Frames of various sizes. All these items will be available to purchase with proceeds going to benefit the Battleship.

Tickets are $100 and include a bottle of our BB62 Battleship Honey Flavored Rum and a dinner platter from Hands Down BBQ. Tickets will be limited to 120. We will also donate 10% of all bar and bottle sales from the event. And if the event is a sell out, we guarantee a minimum donation of $8,000 to the Home Port Alliance, the entity responsible for the daily operations of the Battleship and Museum.

Thank you all for your continued support and we hope to see ya at the Farm.
