Based in Westmont, NJ, Joyful Gathering Spiritual Center is a non-denominational spiritual community that encourages and supports people as they deepen into their personal spirituality. One of the hallmarks of this warm, embracing, vibrant and inclusive community is their commitment to improving the lives of children. “Children are our Greatest Treasure” was the theme of their first-ever partnership with Virtua Foundation, an elegant gala that took place in 2016 at Lucien’s Manor in Berlin. At that event, they honored Virtua physician Paresh Pandit, MD, Assistant Director of Virtua’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for the work Dr. Pandit and his team do to turn struggle into hope.

On May 5, 2019, Joyful Gathering Spiritual Center hosted its second Spring Gala, held at Lucien's Manor in Berlin. Proceeds from the event supported Virtua's Pediatric Mobile Services program and Sam Lacroce, president and founder of the Joseph Lacroce Foundation, was honored for his commitment to children's health.
