Newark, New Jersey - What you see to the left there is the fabled Golden Ticket. Inspired by the 1971 classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory where Gene Wilder plays the irrepressible Willy Wonka, the Golden Ticket was your admission to a place of wonder, imagination and (of course) candy. For the folks who attended the 2011 Essex County Friends of NRA Banquet at Mayfair Farms, the ticket meant just the same ... sans the candy.
In case your magnifying glass isn't working, the ticket reads:
This golden ticket ensures you the opportunity to win an extraordinary, unbelievable, phenomenal surprise. To qualify, you must bring this complete program with a guest to our 2011 FNRA dinner which will be held at the beautiful Mayfair Farms in West Orange, NJ.
