NPEF Touchdown for Education Set for Saturday, Jan. 26; Online Registration Open

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The New Providence Education Foundation (NPEF) would like to invite friends and neighbors to Touchdown for Education, one of the biggest fundraiser of the season, on Saturday, January 26 at The Paca Club from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Tickets to this fun-filled event promise over 50+ baskets for great raffle prizes, an expansive silent auction table, football pool boxes, food and drink! Some premier prizes include spa services, weekend getaways, fitness classes and memberships, restaurant gift cards, Apple merchandise and much much more! 

Founded in 2004, NPEF works to enhance the educational experiences of New Providence students of all ages and has raised $850,000+ since inception. The NPEF engages local sponsors and the community to fulfill teacher-initiated grants that supplement existing programs, and provide for new and innovative efforts for the New Providence school system - many of which would not otherwise be funded.

Supporting events like Touchdown for Education, among other NPEF efforts, helps to raise funds to fulfill grants including three notable ones last year: Providing each of the New Providence schools a Hover-cam Pilot, a mobile interactive podium that is a comprehensive learning tool and Drone Robot Kits Drones to engage students in programming and this will promote creativity, collaboration and critical thinking. Lastly, the WiFi microscopes provided to the High School have allowed students to use microscopes, and the information they gather from them, in a much more dynamic, in-depth and sophisticated way than the traditional microscopes.

Tickets can be purchased at the NPEF website or at the door.
