Havana-on-Hudson 8th Annual Spring Soirée and Fundraiser
See where all of our Fundraising money goes, we’ve just posted the Approved Grants for Academic Year 2013-2014!
Please check out our grants for academic year 2012-2013 featuring funding for the middle school playground renovation, a media arts residency to create a video about the Constitution, power tools for a new woodworking class and a major upgrade of the auditorium sound system.
A huge thank you to everyone for making the 2012 Benefit/Auction such an outstanding success. Nearly three hundred people attended the Foundation’s Seventh Annual Gala at Alder Manor on April 28th, 2012. This year’s enthusiastic and creative event committee, many participating for the first time, outdid themselves, transforming a decrepit, unfurnished mansion into an elegant party venue. As Hillari Freireich, our event chairperson, put it so eloquently, “The spring soiree is at its core a fundraiser for our schools but at its heart a twenty-first century barn-raiser.”
Every year we are honored to work with such talented people, all dedicated to the same goal: supporting our schools, our children and our community. A special thanks to local business people who supported our journal and to everyone who attended the benefit, bid on the silent and live auctions and made our efforts so worthwhile.
