As many families and businesses continue recovery from the destruction of Hurricane Sandy, the children who attend Hoboken Catholic Academy are still displaced from their school. While the early childhood students are situated in an an open gymnasium at Our Lady of Grace Church children from the older grades are being bused to Jersey City daily.
It's unlikely that the children will be able to return to their school before the end of the school year and are still in need of many basic supplies. You can help by supporting the upcoming Benefit and Auction to Support HCA's Storm Relief Efforts. Gather some friends and purchase your tickets for an exciting, fun-filled evening of food, drinks and live entertainment that will feature special guest, Channel's 2 News' Katie McGee, who will be the Master of Ceremonies.
Auction items include dinner at the famous Rao's Restaurant, Mozzarella-Making Lesson with Vito from Vito's Italian Deli, which won the best sandwich competition at the First Annual Mutzfest in January. Other prizes include and exclusive tour with Blue Sky Studios, the award-winning animators of Rio, Ice Age and the upcoming Peanuts movie, weekend getaways, vacations, sporting tickets and memorabilia. So mark your calendar for April 12, 2013 and get out for a fun evening at the Chart House in Weehawken, from 7 pm - 10 pm.
Your support at this time will help us to raise urgently needed funds so that the children can return to their school. You can purchase your tickets online now at http://www.hobokencatholic.
