CHATHAM, NJ - Chatham high school students participated in their annual fashion show fundraiser in front of over one thousand attendees on Friday night.

Students, faculty and town residents packed the cafeteria to watch 175 seniors model the latest fashions provdied by local shops.

According to volunteer, Jan Madura, the New Jersey Pride-themed event raised approximately $75,000 for the school, which the principal will then allocate as necessary.

“This is a once-a-year fundraiser that is a huge community effort.  Local businesses, classes and families get involved and donate their time and materials,” Madura said.

She said that 100 volunteers come together to pull the event off and the planning process begins six months ahead of time.

Aside from the fashion show, Madura said there were also 75 basket raffle and silent auction items that attendees could bid on, which were also all donated.

Chatham High School Principal Darren Groh told TheAlternativePress.com that he was extremely pleased with the sold out show.

“So many people were generous and put together an incredible show for the kids,” Groh said.  “It’s really a great night for the Chatham community.”

Groh said that his favorite part of the night is seeing how many students participate.

“It’s not about academics, competition, or what college you are going to, it’s about tonight,” Groh said. 

Groh explained that it has not yet been determined where the money will be allocated, but it will certainly all go back to the students.
