On April 16th, 2016 at approximately 7PM EST, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake shook the coastal provinces of Guayas & Manabi along the Pacific coast of Ecuador, leaving 400 dead, over 3000 injured, and more than 250 reported missing. 

The extent of the damage has been estimated to be in the BILLIONS of dollars. Those affected have lost their homes, personal belongings, places of business and the ability to provide for their families. In the face of this tragedy Ecuador has come together as one unified nation, showing the world the resiliency and love of its people in the face of adversity.

On May 26th,2016 The Pleasantdale Chateau will dedicate “A Night For Ecuador,” to raise relief funds to aid the victims of this tragic earthquake.

The event will be held at 757 Eagle Rock Ave West Orange, NJ 07052, and will start at 6PM.

With the generosity of the ownership of the world-renowned Pleasantdale Chateau along with the sponsorship and selflessness of our countless sponsors we are inviting you (and your friends) to join us for a night of solidarity for the people of Ecuador.

Your contribution will include musical entertainment provided by Blanc Noir Event Group & Ultrafonk Entertainment - owned and operated by Ecuadorian-born DJs & Event Hosts. The night will include Ecuadorian-inspired culinary offerings by Pleasantdale Chateau along with several Ecuadorian restaurants from the northern New Jersey region. Open bar will be offered at the reception as well.

The night will also feature raffles and silent auction of various services & goods from local businesses. These items and services have been graciously donated by our sponsors and allow us to further our efforts for financial relief. 

All the proceeds from raffles, silent auctions and ticket sales will be directed towards the relief efforts by the Ecuadorian Red Cross. We will also be accepting any additional financial donations above and beyond the cost of the ticket on site during the event. 

Live music, artisanal Ecuadorian goods, radio personalities and local media round out our evening. We sincerely appreciate your support and we look forward to a great evening for a worthy cause.
