KENILWORTH, NJ - The School of Saint Theresa's biggest fundraiser of the year is the annual Tricky Tray which normally brings in over 500 people to participate. This event was supposed to be held on Saturday, March 21, 2020, on the school grounds. Due to the current COVID-19 virus there is now an alternate plan. Please see the important message below from the school.
With everything going on with the COVID-19 virus, the Archdiocese closing schools for classes next week and the governor of NJ advising to cancel all gathering up 250+ people, we needed to come up with a plan to try and still hold our biggest event of the year, while still keeping everyone’s health and safety in mind. We have come up with the following idea: We will open the ticket sales and bidding on Friday, March 20 th from 4 pm – 8 pm and Saturday, March 21st from 12 pm – 6 pm. You can come in and buy tickets like you normally would for all the rooms. We will also be selling the 50/50 raffle. Saturday at 7 pm, we will do a Facebook Live and/or other live streaming service so that you can all watch the tickets being drawn. Directions to access this live stream will be given out on Friday and Saturday when you come in to bid. We will ask each person to write their phone numbers on the back on the tickets, so that there is no confusion. On Sunday, March 22nd, we will be open for people to come and pick up their prizes. For anyone that does not come in on Sunday to claim their prize, we will contact you to make arrangements. We think this is best course of action so that we do not have large crowds congregating, while still trying to hold our biggest and most successful fundraiser of the year. All the bidding will be held in the gym, so we will be able to keep our kid’s classrooms clean and sanitized. The gym and any other area that is used for this event will be deep cleaned after the event and prior to any kids/teachers returning to school. The HSA team and volunteers have been so hard at work for the past few months securing prizes and we really hope that this event continues to be a success. Gather your friends at home, have your tricky tray party while watching the live feed from your living room! We have such great prizes this year that we have not had in recent years. There are 8 vacations, Disney Hopper passes, luggage, baseball games, Bon Jovi tickets and much much more!! This will still be an event you DO NOT want to miss. Since we are no longer having the drawing at the school, we can still sell more tickets, so tell your friends that they can buy tickets to enter at the door on Friday and Saturday and enjoy the live drawing from their home in their pjs! We really appreciate all your support. We are happy to answer any questions, and/or concerns. Please reach out to the HSA via Facebook or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
