PARSIPPANY, NJ - On Friday, February 9, 2018, All Saints Academy (ASA) held its Annual Tricky Tray Fundraiser in Parsippany. This is the school’s largest annual fundraiser conducted by the Home School Association. This year’s sold-out event was led by Co-Chairwoman Beth Huppert and Co-Chairwoman Mary Ellen Cavanaugh, and their all-volunteer committee.
Over 250 baskets of items and prizes were donated, that included sporting tickets, gift cards, jewelry, designer handbags and high-end electronics. One of the grand prizes was a family trip to Florida. The winner of the 50/50 that evening took home over $2,000.
Mayor Michael Soriano donated a silent auction item entitled “Mayor for the Day” such that the student-winner would spend time with the Mayor in his office learning about the responsibilities of the position as the CEO of Parsippany.
Principal Judith Berg considered the event a success, as it hosted over 340 attendees of ASA families and friends, and it was estimated to have met its fundraising expectations. In addition to the Mayor, sponsors included Assemblyman Jay Webber, Senator Joe Pennacchio, Freeholder John Cesaro, Parsippany Councilman Michael dePierro and Councilwoman Loretta Gragnani. Attendees included Michael dePierro and Board of Education President Frank Neglia.
All Saints Academy is located at 189 Baldwin Road and has approximately 245 students attending this year. Established in 2009, ASA is a Preschool through Grade 8 school, serving the three Parsippany Roman Catholic parishes of Saint Ann, Saint Christopher and Saint Peter the Apostle and the Parsippany community.
