We will toast Ann Marie in recognition of her professional career and the indelible mark she has left on the cultural landscape of New Jersey.

Adam Perle, President and CEO of ArtPride NJ, eloquently encapsulates Ann Marie's immeasurable contributions: "ArtPride New Jersey joyfully celebrates the remarkable retirement of Ann Marie Miller, an unwavering champion of the arts in our beloved community. Her 28-year journey has been nothing short of extraordinary, leaving an indelible mark on the cultural tapestry of New Jersey."
