The Blue and Gold Scholarship Committee thanks…
The Beefsteak Dinner held on Saturday,
February 1, 2003 at the Lodi Boys'/Girls' Club raised
$25, 000 toward the Blue and Gold Scholarship fund.
Over 450 Hackensack Alumni and friends attended. A
special thank you to Ms. Annette Miello, Special
Education teacher at HHS, for organizing this
successful event. To date we have collected nearly
$210,000 toward our Scholarship!
Dale Houlis and
Terry Sellarole for making the Atlantic City bus ride a tremendous success. A profit of $1,027 was realized from this event.
…Rich and Mary Gelber for the outstanding job they did this Halloween. They raised over $3500 for the scholarship. A great deal of work went into making the Clinton Avenue Halloween display so successful. Their friends and neighbors,
Rich and Susan Plump also put a great deal of time and effort into making this a special event. There are many others to thank, especially the HHS Art and Industrial Arts Departments, in particular Bill Ackerman and Sonia
Kiprios. These dedicated teachers and their students put in many hours of energy, creativity and effort to make the Harry Potter Display an incredible visual experience. We also thank
Joan Cerbo, Dale Houlis, Frank Giurleo, Bobbi
Maroth, Alan Petretti, Joe De Falco , Jack Giorgio and various HHS students who were there every night asking passersby to donate to our cause. Without their efforts
we would not have done as well.
THE OFFICIAL TOTAL raised from the Halloween event was $3501.97!
… Roger Maggio (Webmaster, USA) for offering his staff members,
Allen Pollack and Linda Atamian to help us develop and maintain this website.
… Diane Menditto for the outstanding job she has done in updating and providing many of the pictures for our website. She has put many hours into making it look appealing, creative and informative and we have been getting many compliments from those who have seen it as to how professional it looks.
