Rumson-Fair Haven High School Foundation, a non-profit organization of parents and faculty which supports educational programs at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School, announced that it will hold a winter fundraiser on Saturday, January 24, 2015.

Scheduled for the hours of 7 to 10 pm at Knights of Columbus Council 3187 on Fair Haven Road, the “Apres Ski” themed event is described by R-FH Foundation president Judi Tavill as “a great way for parents to connect with other parents and meet the R-FH staff in a fun, relaxed setting while at the same time supporting some fabulous programs which will benefit our children.”

Founded in 2001, the R-FH High School Foundation is a charitable organization whose mission is to fund projects and grants that will enrich the high school education program. The grants, proposed by teachers and the board, provide state-of-the-art technology, resources and creative supplements to R-FH consistent with the Foundation’s commitment to exceptional education. Field trips, transportation costs, auxiliary classroom equipment, speakers and presentations are just a few of the various items granted through the Foundation.

The Foundation has successfully completed several significant capital campaigns including a world language computer lab, an auditorium projection system, and high-technology lab. The organization recently completed the Auditorium Sound and Lighting Project. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised over $500,000 for capital campaigns and numerous smaller grants.

Tickets to the January 24 event are $75 per person, and include hors d’oeuvres, musical entertainment and chance prizes. Tickets are available via PayPal on the R-FH Foundation website. Payment by check can also be sent to RFHHS Foundation, 74 Ridge Road, Rumson, NJ 07760, by January 16, 2015.
