On March 5, a St. Patrick’s Day Dinner “Italian Style” is set to be held at the Knights of Columbus in Netcong to help raise money to fund student technology initiatives for Netcong Elementary School.
The event is sponsored by Netcong Educational Foundation (NEF), Netcong-Stanhope Rotary, Netcong Board of Education, Netcong Elementary School PTA, Knights of Columbus and High Grade Beverage.
The event will include a catered dinner from Burrini’s Olde World Market which includes corned beef and cabbage, parsley potatoes, buttered carrots, shepherd’s pie, chicken francaise, penne vodka, eggplant rollatine, Irish soda bread, dessert, beer, wine, soda, and water. A cash bar will also be available for other cocktails. Entertainment will include a DJ, Irish step dancers, bagpipers, and a 50/50 raffle.
Tickets are $45 and are available at the main office of Netcong School and at the Netcong Borough Town Hall.
Board Trustee Bernadette Dalesandro had the idea six months ago. She brought up the concept to the NEF and together they created the first Annual Technology Fundraising Event. Dalesandro said this fundraiser is extremely important because it allows us to raise funds for resources that will ensure our students will continue to thrive as 21st Century learners. Dalesandro hopes that this will be an annual event for many years to come and that all money raised will provide continuing improvements to help make Netcong School’s technology second to none.
Dalesandro also initiated incentives to sell dinner tickets as well. At this point in time, any Netcong School staff member will get their name entered into a drawing to win a $100 gift card for every dinner ticket purchased.
