About this Event

9/10/20 Update:

When we last updated this listing, our hope was to hold our Tricky Tray at Franklin High School, in October. Since then, Franklin Township Public Schools has announced that they will not be allowing use of any of their buildings by outside groups. We tried to find another venue for an indoor/outdoor event, but our efforts were further complicated when, in August, the limit on the number of people allowed at an indoor gathering in NJ was reduced from 50 to 25.

As a result, we no longer expect to be able to hold this Tricky Tray in 2020. We are now aiming for spring of 2021.

Since we do not yet have a venue, we do not yet have a firm date. However, the Eventbrite system requires us to put in a new date when we postpone. For that purpose we are using the date of March 19, 2021.

When we have a new date and location, we will email ticket holders with all the details. At that time, should you no longer wish or be able to attend, you will be given the opportunity to request a refund, or to cancel your reservation while donating your $20 registration fee to the club for our scholarship fund.

Should you prefer to receive a refund now, please email Please include your name, address and details about what should be refunded. FYI, it is likely that when we are finally able to hold this Tricky Tray that we will NOT open sales up again, so that we have a less crowded event.

Please be advised that Eventbrite refunds always go back to the original card used for purchase. If you no longer have that card, be sure to let us know so that we can discuss options with you prior to processing the refund.

If you ordered tickets for friends or relatives, please share this information with them.

New Online Silent Auction

Some of the gift certificates that businesses donated as prizes for our 2020 Tricky Tray will expire prior to March of 2021. As a result, Franklin Woman’s Club is investigating options for an online silent auction of select Tricky Tray prizes (gift certificates, Christmas items, etc.) in October/November. The Tricky Tray committee will replenish prizes as necessary, so there will still be an abundance of prizes at our 2021 Tricky Tray.

Old York Cellars Wine Label Fundraiser

Need an excuse to buy some wine? Franklin Woman’s Club has partnered with Old York Cellars to bring you delicious wine in bottles with fun messages, perfect for enjoying at home or giving as a gift! There are three wine options, a white blend, a red blend, and a blush, each with a unique label, with sayings such as “Smile, There’s Wine” and “2020 Survival Beverage” (complete with images of masks and rolls of TP!) Go to to place your order for pickup at their winery in Ringoes (near Flemington) or their tasting room in Quakerbridge Mall, or for delivery (fee applies). For each bottle purchased, Old York Cellars will provide a donation to Franklin Woman’s Club to help offset the cost of storing the Tricky Tray baskets!

6/15/20 Update:

We are now hoping to have this Tricky Tray on Friday, October 2, dependent on school availability and the relaxing of restrictions on indoor gatherings of large groups.  When a new date is finalized (10/2 or other), email notification will be sent to all that purchased tickets.  Thank you for your patience.


3/31/20 Update: 

This new date of 6/19/20 is very tentative, pending both removal of social distancing restrictions and school availability.  We needed to update this site before the original event date (4/3), because otherwise the event would be treated as a completed/past event.  When a new date is finalized (6/19 or other), email notification will be sent to all ticket holders.  In the meantime, stay home and stay well!


3/16/20 Update: 

In accordance with the Franklin Township State of Emergency and recommendations from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to try to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), our Tricky Tray scheduled for April 3rd at Franklin High School is being postponed.  A new date is not yet available.  We are investigating our options and will provide you with updates when available.  If you ordered tickets for friends or relatives, please share this information with them. Thank you.
