Each year, the Buccaneer Booster Club at Red Bank Regional High School gives out thousands of dollars in scholarships to graduating seniors and grants to teachers.

The organization, which functions as the school’s parent-teacher organization, also raises money for academic and athletic enrichment, staff appreciation and building beautification.

And this is where the money comes from — or a good portion of it. A big annual event.

On Sunday, the boosters will hold a fundraiser disguised as a luncheon fashion show, in which students from the Fashion Club and the mothers of students will model partywear from Marisa, Ellen Ryan Tolen’s boutique on Broad Street in Red Bank.


Themed “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” the event will be held at Branches, a catering hall in West Long Branch, from 11:30 a to 3:30p.

Flitting among tables decorated with turquoise gift boxes and strands of pearls, booster club moms will wear classic “little black dresses” redolent of the style often associated with the late Audrey Hepburn. One of the moms will work the room as a reincarnated Holly Golightly.

Among the students scheduled to participate are the three seniors pictured here: Erin Lawlor of Neptune City,
Mary McMahon of Red Bank and Morgan Karalevich of Shrewsbury, who will also serve as announcer.

Work it, ladies!
