Moon Over Manhattan Gala to Raise Money for Enhanced Security in North Caldwell Schools

February 18, 2014 at 12:03 AM


NORTH CALDWELL, NJ - The North Caldwell Partnership for Education (NCPE) is pleased to announce their annual fundraising gala, "Moon Over Manhattan Supper Club and Silent Auction". This elegant event will be held on Friday, March 14, in the Ballroom at University Hall at Montclair State University. The proceeds will go toward security updates at Grandview and Gould schools. The NCPE hopes to have 300 attendees and raise $40,000 through this event.

Due to budget limitations within the school district, the NCPE works closely with the administration and the North Caldwell Board of Education (NCBOE) to help fund technology and capital improvements in Grandview and Gould schools. Following the tragedy at Sandy Hook, the NCBOE hired security experts to assess security within the schools and provide enhanced security recommendations.The District has received grants to help subsidize these costs, however, the total costs for the recommended upgrades are significant.  
Tickets are $125 per person and include a buffet dinner, the Double Down Swing band, roaming entertainers, classy lounge area, signature vintage cocktails, and a spectacular view of the New York City skyline. Tickets may be purchased online via credit card through the NCPE Store by clicking here. Those paying by check may make it payable to NCPE and mail to:
Wendy Nash
21 Evergreen Drive
North Caldwell, NJ 07006.
“We are thrilled to provide parents, friends, family, and neighbors with a fun and relaxing evening while we raise funds to increase our children’s safety at school,” exclaimed Wendy Nash, Gala Coordinator. "Attendance at the gala will turn enhanced security measures at North Caldwell schools from a dream into a reality."

The purpose of the NCPE is to support the education of students within Gould and Grandview Schools.
