VFEE To Auction Sports, Food, Tech Treats In Spring Fundraiser
The Verona Foundation for Educational Excellence (VFEE) is holding its spring fundraiser on Thursday, March 27, and the event includes a large array of silent auction items. There is something for everyone–from museum memberships to a fresh butchered organic lamb to golf outings at Montclair and Essex Fells Country Clubs. The most recent addition is an SAT prep course from Chyten in Montclair.
A silent auction for all the items below will be held during the VFEE fundraiser, which will be held at the Verona Inn from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. The single price of $50 will provide wine, beer and appetizers throughout the evening. Limited reservations are still available.
If you can’t make the evening’s festivities but want to have a shot at two tickets to any Giants home game, it can happen! E-mail [email protected] with what you’d like to bid on and a phone number to reach you and a trustee will be in touch. Also, if you’d like to attend (to be front and center for the auction) please use the same email and specify number attending.
Founded in 2006, VFEE funds grants to Verona public school teachers in the areas of technology, academic enhancement, arts and education, professional development and cultural rnrichment. For more information on its mission and past grants, see its Web site.
