MADISON, NJ- Former Madison High School student, Robert Keller (as part of his final project) will be hosting a cabaret fundraiser event to raise awareness for special needs education in New Jersey.
The event is a night of desserts and musical performances sung by high school students from Madison, Morristown, Parsippany, Randolph, and Scotch Plains, NJ. Many of the performers were seen in the MHS production of Les Miserables in March. Friday's fundraiser will be held on Friday, July 10th at 7:00pm at the Madison Community Center on Cook Avenue.
“We have the talent, why not showcase it?” says Robert Keller, coordinator for the Cabaret. “Come out and enjoy a relaxing night with sweet treats to indulge in while helping a good cause.”
The dinner theater style cabaret will help raise funds for The Newmark School in Scotch Plains, NJ. The Newmark School and Newmark High School are state-approved, private schools serving children living with autism spectrum disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, attention issues and other developmental disabilities.
“As a special needs student I understand just how difficult it is for students who struggle with academics and socially acceptable behavior. The Newmark School is a place that helps students cope with any disability. My goal is to give back to the school that helped me become who I am today so that other students may have the same opportunities I had when I attended. As for the cabaret event, the music is always great as are the tasty treats! I hope to see you there!”
Admission is $5 per person at the door. ($15 suggested donation.)
