proudly announces that the funds raised from
Mansion in May
will go toward the expansion
and modernization of
The Institute of Bioskills
Training and Innovation
Mansion in May is the signature fundraiser for WAMMC, generating over $12 million since its inception in 1974 for Morristown Medical Center, rated the number one hospital in New Jersey for the fifth year in a row according to U.S. News and World Report. Three Fields will join the list of majestic estates hosting Mansion in May and will be open to the public from May 1 to May 31, 2023. Tickets for private tours and general admission will be available for purchase online beginning February 1, 2023.
This year's mansion will benefit the expansion and modernization of Morristown Medical Center's Institute of Bioskills Training and Innovation. The Center, opened in 2005, offers physicians, nurses, and other health professionals a safe and controlled environment in which to practice clinical skills without risk of patient harm through simulation training. This training helps bridge the gap between theory and practice. Morristown Medical Center aims to create a state-of-the art simulation training "hub" for its clinical team and eventually for all Atlantic Health hospitals.
The Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center is a 500 plus member volunteer organization established in 1893 to support our community hospital and celebrating our 130th anniversary.
Our mission is to support Morristown Medical Center in advancing the quality
of health care in the community. The association fulfills this mission through fundraising endeavors like Mansion in May, charitable enterprises like the Bargain Box thrift shop and the Corner gift shops at the Medical Center and by providing caring services to patients and visitors. We accomplish all of this by living up to our motto "Contributing with Passion".
The Women's Association for Morristown Medical Center is proud to present its 20th Mansion in May Designer Showhouse and Gardens at Three Fields located in Mendham Borough, New Jersey. The 9,000 square foot stone, brick and tile-roofed French manor style home was designed by New York architect Greville Rickard for Benjamin Duncan Mosser and his wife, the former Florence Willets Mosford. Three Fields was designed and built between 1929 and 1930 and is beautifully situated on almost 36 acres of pastoral, rolling fields and features many architectural elements, including tall, steeply pitched tile roofs punctuated by dormers, wood casement windows (originally shuttered) and French doors that open to the formal gardens, ponds, and fields beyond. The façade, made up of several conjoined units - as if the house had been added to over the years - as well as roofs with built-in bumps and sags, all served to further project the romantic look of an elegant, long established country residence.
