NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The Roaring Twenties was the theme for the PTSA’s annual Tricky Tray and Prom Fashion show that took place Saturday night at New Providence High School. The auditorium and cafeteria were transformed beautifully back to the era of flappers, the Charleston and Jay Gatsby.

The doors opened at 5 p.m. and well over 500 people streamed into the event to be part of the big night that included over 100 baskets totaling over $20,000 in prizes including Justin Bieber tickets, gym memberships and a flat screen television. There was also a 50/50 raffle and music by DJ Souren.

At 7 p.m. the Fashion show portion of the evening began with a performance of “Puttin on the Ritz” by a trio of NPHS students John Ertman, Sasha Kandybin and Joe Mathusek. NPHS teachers Walter Kempner and Joanne Trimble served as emcees for the fashion show introducing nearly 100 seniors down the runway. The boys modeled tuxedos from Adam’s Menswear in New Providence and the girls modeled gowns from both Lord & Taylor in Westfield and David’s Bridal in Springfield.  Senior Noah Kudman and junior Lara Gavagan performed a tap number halfway through the show.

This year more than 150 local businesses along with many families and school organizations donated to the Tricky Tray. The annual event is the largest fundraiser for the PTSA. Proceeds of the event help fund Project Graduation, Mini-grants for teachers, assemblies and much more for the New Providence school district.

Kate Forbes, the chairperson of the Prom Fashion show is very grateful for all the community support and acknowledged the many committees involved in the event that made the night run so smoothly. “What a great night!” said Forbes. “This fundraiser is about more than raising funds, it’s about bringing together the community and creating an event for those involved to remember for a long time,” she added.

Lisa House, the president of the PTSA wanted to extend her gratitude to “everyone who participated in the success of the night. We are extremely grateful for everyone’s contributions, which allow us to support the entire high school community, the students, parents and teachers.”
