SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The Education Enrichment Foundation of Scotch Plains-Fanwood hosted its Fall Wine Tasting fundraiser at The Tavern at Ash Brook on Thursday, Nov.21. Parents, teachers, principals and the community came out to celebrate as over 100 people attended this year's fundraiser, sponsored by The Wine Cellar of Watchung (at BJ’s).
The Tavern at Ash Brook (located at Ash Brook golf course) served up delicious appetizers and desserts all evening as the wine flowed and the SPFHS jazz quartet, The Four-Tune Cookies, entertained the crowd. The members of the quartet are Aditya Phatak on drums, Nirayka Monga on piano, Will Schetelich on trumpet and Aditya Aggarwal on bass. The students are all part of the high school's award-winning Moonglowers jazz band.
All proceeds raised benefit EEF programs like LTC 100 and HackSPF, as well as educator grants for the teachers of the Scotch Plains-Fanwood School District. The event raised close to $2,000, according to EEF President Anthony Fiore.
“It was an amazing show of support for the EEF from our community," said Robin Broadbent, who attended and represented the SPFK12 District. "(There was) So much camaraderie and energizing music from our students -- just another reason to love our towns and schools!"
