Members of the Millburn Education Association joined forces with 20 students from the Millburn High School Make-A-Wish club, to host a special night aimed at raising awareness and funds for an important cause. In its fourth year, the benefit night raised funds, which were donated to the Make-A-Wish of NJ Foundation.
Over 200 members, friends, and townspeople attended the benefit evening, held at the Grand Hotel in Summit. The event began with an MEA members only benefit fair and workshops, on such topics as evaluations and retirement. “This was a wonderful time for members to relax and visit with one another while engaging in learning,” said Lois Infanger, Millburn Education Association President. Members were given a chance to bid on a huge variety of tricky tray items ranging from gift card packages to area restaurants and even day passes to Disney parks.
That evening, the doors were then opened to the public who joined the MEA members for dinner and they also had a chance to bid on the tricky tray items.
“It was a wonderful evening and I’m proud that our students and members raised over $5000 for Make-A-Wish, such a good cause,” said Infanger.
