KENILWORTH, NJ – The junior class of David Brearley served plates of pasta, salad and dessert to hungry guests during their sixth annual “It’s Gravy, Not Sauce!” Pasta Dinner last night.

The event is an opportunity for students in David Brearley’s junior class to raise money for the event of their choosing, including their senior trip, prom, etc. According to student Desiree Ellison, all the students will be putting their earnings towards their senior trip to Universal Studios in Florida next year.

“I started in eighth grade and I’ve done it since then,” Ellison said. “I like to help and I like to hang out with my friends.”

The students work as hosts, servers, clean-up crew and kitchen help. They only have one more year to do this event, as they’ll graduate in 2018.

“The kids do a lot of the work themselves,” Mary Gaines, an event organizer every year, said. “They plan it, they help bring the stuff in, they help serve. It’s very good for them to learn that with hard work, they achieve some rewards at the end of the day.”

Guests included parents, siblings and seniors who were bussed in to enjoy the pasta dinner. One diner, Lucille Lucadema, who’s 94-years-old, has been coming every year with her daughter and other members of the Kenilworth Seniors Club.

“I like to see people and meet new people,” Lucadema said. “I table hop a lot. I’ve lived in Kenilworth for 60 years and I love it. I love Kenilworth and the people are nice.”
