The evening was a huge success for our students. The Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children, along with our honorees, sponsors, guests and auction, raised one of the highest amounts in the history of the fundraising dinners. Here are some pictures of our guests mingling during the cocktail hour at The Venetian in Garfield, NJ.
With some music from Tim McLoone and The Shirleys, guests enjoyed some dancing. The renown St. Peter’s Preparatory School group The Vox performed for our guests and the Student Ambassadors from St. Augustine School in Union City greeted our guests. Our student speaker, A’Liyah Thomas, from St. Joseph the Carpenter School in Roselle, NJ wowed the crowd as she spoke on how important the SFIC Scholarship has been for her and her family and other students just like her.
