Spring Soirée featuring Cake Boss Buddy Valastro
The Hudson School Parents’ Association is delighted to announce its annual Spring Soirée to benefit the Scholarship Fund. This year’s event will be at 6:30pm on Monday, May 9, 2011, at the Chart House in Weehawken, NJ.
After exceptional dining amid spectacular views, guests will enjoy a special appearance by Buddy Valastro, Hoboken’s own celebrity baker and star of TLC’s reality shows “The Cake Boss” and “The Next Great Baker.”
Another Hoboken luminary, indie music singer-songwriter Kate Jacobs will round out the celebration performing selections from her new album, “Home Game.”
Guests can also participate in silent and live auctions of unique items running the gamut from practical to sublime.
Since its inception in 1978, The Hudson School has maintained a ‘need-blind’ admissions policy, guaranteeing that no child is turned away for financial reasons. As such, it is the cornerstone of the school’s commitment to creating a diverse learning community.
Each year, the Parents’ Association Spring Soirée raises the funds necessary to provide a life-changing educational opportunity for deserving children of disadvantaged backgrounds. The Hudson School’s tuition includes their co-curricular programs at no additional charge to families, so scholarship students also receive music, theater, arts, trips and after-school activities as part of their education. Currently, there are 67 students who have qualified this year for at least partial financial aid. The total cost of the Scholarship Program is nearly $550,000 annually and funded through the generosity of The Hudson School’s families and friends.
