Swing Fore The Schools Golf Outing

Golf Outing benefits Hoboken Schools – next weekend!

If you want to have some outdoor fun this spring – and help out select Hoboken schools – mark your calendars for Friday, May 6th 2011!

Spring is in the air – time to get out those golf clubs and raise some money for a great cause!

Parents from Five Hoboken Schools (All Saints, Elysian, Hoboken Charter, HoLa, and Mustard Seed) have joined together to create a one-of-a-kind golf event. Please join us on Friday May 6th for an afternoon of Golf, Prizes, Give-Aways and Fun!

The event is a double-shotgun four person scramble taking place on the Wild Turkey & Crystal Springs Golf Courses at the breathtaking Crystal Springs Resort in Hardyston, NJ (about an hour away from Hoboken).

Dont play golf? Hotel discounts and day passes to use the amazing Crystal Springs Biosphere pool are available, there is a a full miniature golf course and we will have face painting and activities for kids or spend the afternoon at the Crystal Springs Resort Spa so make a day (or weekend of it!)

The outing will include lunch, free range balls, golf, dinner, and all sorts of contests and events including an amazing Hole-In-One competition for a full year membership at the Classic Car Club of Manhattan valued at nearly $20,000!

Bring your friends, family, colleagues and clients out for a great day on the course and help raise money to benefit over 1,000 kids in Hoboken!

This amazing event, also presents an unprecedented opportunity for sponsors to reach the Hoboken community. Please see the sponsorship opportunites and consider being among the first to sponsor what will surely become an annual Hoboken tradition.

If you interested in getting involved, helping to sell to golfers and sponsors, please contact us. Also, if you are interested in volunteering on the day, we’d love to hear from you! This is a great way to show your support for your school and your community and get involved in a really fun event!

Thank You,
Bill Goodbody (Hoboken Charter School), Peter Cossio (All Saints Episcopal Day School), Brian Neville (Elysian Charter School), Anthony Oland & George Duke (HoLa) and Jen Groce, Cindy Samaris & Mike Fasciano (Mustard Seed School).

obviously i’m not privy to 411’s stats, but let me reiterate and instead say that the vitriol amongst posters here runs 100% counter to creating any sense of so-called “community.” We see it in politics and, imho, we see it more and more here too. Again, just imho. Now I’ll go back to lurking and watch the glowing food reviews and the HPD fan club take over again…. 🙂

wow, we couldn’t find a better example of how the vitriol on this board has been KILLING the traffic to this site over the last 1-2 years. KILLING it so well it’s actually pretty sad! Maybe 411 needs a “MESSAGE” option so that people who want to attack each other for whatever reason can do it directly without all the rest of us having to wade through this crap. On an unrelated note, but related to the thread (as it should be?!?) anyone know other cool auction items etc? That classic car membership sounds neat…

Hey everyone! I just heard that Cablevision Channel 18 is doing an interview with some of the organziers that will air tonight on their Neighborhood Journal-Hudson News Edition. It will repeat 4 times an hours at 7pm, 9pm and 11pm tonight and at 6am, 7am and 8am tomorrow.

Check it out and learn more about this great event!

if it makes a difference, I don’t think the other schools listed pay property taxes either

But, as a renter in town, I know I’m paying property taxes, and if any of the schools are renting space, depending on who the landlord is, they are paying property taxes too

Do All Saints and Mustard Seed pay property taxes? If not, why would they need money?

Just asking.

Yes, because the only reason a person or group would hold a fundraiser is to pay their property taxes. [quote comment=”205044″]Do All Saints and Mustard Seed pay property taxes? If not, why would they need money? Just asking.[/quote]

Spoken by a moron who has no idea about what-goes-in versus what-goes-out in certain private schools in town.

Poor babe, did you get up on the wrong side of the bed? In case you’re too groggy still, the fundraiser is to benefit the schools, not Japan or someone who needs it, but go ahead and check out the website if you want something more than whatever your behind drums up.[quote comment=”205055″]Yes, because the only reason a person or group would hold a fundraiser is to pay their property taxes.

Right, I’m the person without a clue here. Yes, 501(c)3 organizations are exempt from paying property taxes and yes, a school like Mustard Seed is one of those that qualify. They are indeed a non-profit organization. But since you know everything I guess you are probably aware that about half of the students that attend that school are on some sort of financial aid which provides an opportunity to kids who may not come from an affluent background. How is that possible you ask? Well maybe the school hosts fundraisers from time to time to help reduce operational costs and afford those kids who may be less priveleged another schooling option. Maybe, the recession has taken its toll on enrollment just like it has on most of the nation’s businesses. Maybe tuition fees are not sufficiently covering expenses. And maybe there are individuals and corporations who arent completely self-absorbed like you are and actually care and want to provide another option to families who ordinarily wouldnt be able to afford these schools. Maybe they would be happy to donate their money to allow the current students to take part in a field trip that they otherwise couldnt. If you dont like the cause then dont participate. Simple as that. But dont go out of your way to attempt to destroy their efforts. We are all very aware of your aversion to children but you dont pay a dime to the schools and they sure as hell didnt ask you specifically… Read more »

How do you know I don’t contribute to any local schools? Last time I checked, brainiac, Hoboken Charter and Elysian Charter don’t charge thousands of dollars for part-time students. And yes, you’ve wrecked yourself with your usual foot-in-mouth lectures.[quote comment=”205068″]Right, I’m the person without a clue here.

Oh, please explain how I put my foot in my mouth and “wrecked myself” by calling you out for being the idiot that you are. I guess its pure coincidence that the list of people that think you are the village idiot is growing exponentially.

What does “Hoboken Charter and Elysian Charter don’t charge thousands of dollars for part-time students” have to do with your comment of “they dont need the money since they dont pay property taxes”?

The point is if you dont like a fundraising cause dont participate but you certainly dont need to undermine other people’s efforts with made up facts. It takes a real dirtbag to do something like that, especially when there are children involved….and of course, you fit the bill.[quote comment=”205077″]How do you know I don’t contribute to any local schools?Last time I checked, brainiac, Hoboken Charter and Elysian Charter don’t charge thousands of dollars for part-time students.And yes, you’ve wrecked yourself with your usual foot-in-mouth lectures.[/quote]

Because, oh master of knowledge, private schools in these parts charge way, way more than they should for a three-year-old who plays with Legos for a couple of hours. If they’re not lacking in tuition, they’re lacking in property costs. And if they’re not lacking in property costs, then what do they need money for? I understand the charter schools lacking support because they heavily depend on contributions by parents. But what gives with the other schools? And please, you list the exponential people I don’t care about who think I’m a village idiot, sir. Whatever it takes to make you feel better about your miserable existence. You’re so quick to point out how miserable you think I am, but I know deep down this is just a projection of your own rotten character. I’m actually in a far better position than you think. But nice try.[quote comment=”205079″]Oh, please explain how I put my foot in my mouth and “wrecked myself” by calling you out for being the idiot that you are.

I’m fairly certain that we’ve already been warned about off-topic bantering like “let’s take a dump on mooshu because our lives suck so bad”. So I find it pretty interesting that you’re the one inquiring about my age, when it is clear you haven’t accomplished a 2nd grade reading comprehension level, you cow.

In an effort to put an end to this disparaging thread started by our village idiot, I will say only one more thing. Regardless of whether these schools are charters funded by taxpayers or are non-profit organizations, this seems to me like an extremely worthwhile event and I praise the efforts of everyone involved. All of these schools offer families another educational option for their children which can only be a positive in our community. I hope all of these Hoboken schools benefit greatly from this fundraiser and from the people and corporations who care about our children. Good luck with the golf outing![quote comment=”205079″]Oh, please explain how I put my foot in my mouth and “wrecked myself” by calling you out for being the idiot that you are.
