Pictured during the St. Jude Cards for Kids event at Red Bank Regional High School are (standing, left to right) Mike Hanlon, Jack McMahon; (sitting) Sophie Morris, Megan Zabarsky, Madison Ciccone, and Isabella Ramos. The students were among the more than 75 participants who created 125 fanciful holiday cards filled with best wishes for the children at St. Jude’s Hospital in Chicago. RBR teachers Jennifer Casaine and Cassandra Dorn act as coordinators for the activity, which expanded this year to two extra days, and which drew the participation of everyone from athletes to International Baccalaureate students.
