WEF Spring Fling Funding New School Initiative

This year's masquerade ball will benefit science, technology, engineering and math initiatives in township schools

The Wyckoff Education Foundation announced this week that the annual “Spring Fling” dinner and dance will be held on Friday, March 15, from 7 to 11 p.m. at Macaluso’s in Hawthorne.

This year’s event will feature an “Unmask The Future” theme, and will feature New Jersey band, Trippin’ Carla. The evening will include also feature a buffet dinner, open bar, door prizes, and exciting live and silent auction items.

“Over the last two years, the generous support from our Wyckoff Community allowed WEF to purchase 250 iPads for use in our K-8 classrooms throughout the District”, said WEF President Robert Bayer. “In collaboration with Wyckoff School Superintendent Rich Kuder, WEF is now working on funding innovative programs in the science, tech, engineering and math disciplines in our Wyckoff Schools. It’s an exciting project for WEF and we are looking forward to giving our children new tools for learning in this area”.

The Wyckoff Education Foundation is a non-profit organization created in 1990 in response to declining government funding of schools. The WEF Fundraisers directly benefit more than 2,300 Wyckoff students in the four elementary schools and the Eisenhower Middle School. Since its inception, the foundation has raised $1.3 million and has awarded the funds through grants to the Wyckoff Board of Education.

Tickets to the WEF “Unmask The Future” event on March 15 are $95 per person and registration and/or donations can be made online at www.wyckoff.org or by contacting Todd at toduffy07@gmail.com, Greg at gwilson0001@gmail.com or Daniella at drubes1024@gmail.com.
