On April 21st, the Upper Saddle River Educational Foundation (USREF) held its 9th annual “Town Night Out” gala sponsored by the Ramsey Auto Group. The evening billed as the “Ultimate House Party” was held at Greenbaum Interiors in Paterson. Over 200 guests walked through the red carpet entrance and photo shoot to enjoy signature welcome drinks and the many rooms of the party such as the Cigar Lounge and the Martini Room. The ballroom held a lavish buffet catered by the Brownstone as well as a live auction. Both live and silent auctions raised more than $80,000 for the district. Upper Saddle River Mayor Joanne Minichetti was honored with this year’s “Award for Excellence” for her 20+ year commitment to the community.
The monies allow the USREF to provide educational based grants which would otherwise not be possible due to lack of school funding. With the grant money, faculty can proceed with innovative and creative programs to benefit students in the Upper Saddle River school district.
