As part of Operation Jersey Summer, which is aimed at getting as many New Jerseyans ages 12 and up vaccinated against COVID-19, beginning May 19, individuals age 18 or older who have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccination in New Jersey since December can enter to win dinner along with a guest with Governor Murphy and First Lady Tammy Murphy.

Entries must be submitted by May 31.

To be eligible to win, you must:

  1. Live in New Jersey.
  2. Be 18 years of age or older at the time you enter the contest.
  3. Have gotten at least your first dose of the Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, or Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine at the time you enter the contest.
  4. Be fully vaccinated before the dinner with the Governor and the First Lady.
  5. Complete the following form, and be willing to provide additional information to State officials, including, but not limited to, verification that you are fully vaccinated.

The winner will be randomly selected by officials at the Office of the Governor from the list of all eligible entrants. One entry per person is allowed - duplicate entries may be disqualified.

If you are selected, you will be able to choose whether you would like to have dinner with the Governor and the First Lady at Drumthwacket or at the Governor's Residence at Island Beach State Park.
