Madison Education Foundation to Host "British Invasion" Adult Social at The Madison Hotel


MADISON, NJ- The Madison Education Foundation (MEF) will hold its sixth annual adult social on Friday, November 13th from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at The Madison Hotel, 1 Convent Road, Morristown. The evening will raise funds to support the work of MEF, whose mission is to award grants to K-12 teachers for initiatives that energize the creative and academic lives of students, but are above and beyond the Madison school budget.

“MEF has had a tremendous impact on enriching the experience our students have in the classroom. Our success as an education foundation has only been possible through the generosity of our parent and business communities,” says MEF Co-President, Mary Schaenen. “Our annual adult social is a wonderful way for our community to come together to support our work and enjoy a fabulous evening.”  Proceeds from the event will support upcoming grant cycles. 

This year’s event will embrace an informal and unique theme: “British Invasion.”

“We wanted to come up with a theme for the night that is a bit less formal than previous years,” says Suzie Reilly, event co-chair. 

“People should feel comfortable wearing anything from jeans to cocktail attire – something smashing to get their British on.”

The evening will feature music by Chuck Russo, Disc Jockey and Madison native.

“Our playlist will run the gamut of British tracks, including songs from the Beatles, Elton John, the Spice Girls, the Cure and more,” says event Co-Chair Claudine Giglio.

“Every genre will be represented so there will be music for everyone -- bring your requests!”

In addition to the Silent Auction, there will be a 50/50 raffle and a “Bevvy Pull” which will include both liquor and wine.  New this year is the “Golden Ticket” sale, where 100 Golden Tickets will be sold for $100 each.  The holder of the Golden Ticket with the winning number will have first choice of any Silent Auction item in the Glynallyn Ballroom at no cost. 

“There will only be 100 Golden Tickets sold at the registration table the night of the event - first come, first served.  Attendees are encouraged to buy a Golden Ticket before they are sold out,” adds Giglio.

Event invitations will be mailed district-wide the first week of October and tickets are priced at $85 per person, which includes all food and beverages. MEF encourages all those wishing to attend to register early to guarantee admittance. 

“MEF’s British Invasion will be a fun and lively evening to support all the good things MEF does for our children, so register early!” Giglio states. 

Online registration will be available from October 3 – November 11 at For additional information, please contact the Madison Education Foundation at
