Event organizers, Suzanne Tedesco and Jennifer Donovan, grow the event each year by bringing in new and unique retailers. “With more than 30 select vendors, the event is a great opportunity to get a head start on holiday shopping while having an evening out with friends,” said Tedesco.

“We have grown our raffle and silent auction prizes to value more than $20,000 with thanks to our many generous donors. A limited number of raffle tickets will be sold until 7:30 p.m. Our fabulous prizes include event tickets, restaurant gift certificates, salon and spa treatments, sports memorabilia, jewelry, gift baskets, fitness packages, vacation stays and much, much more,” added Donovan.

“We are pleased to be able to partner with such a great group of small and independent business owners to enhance the Foundation’s mission,” said RCS Foundation Director Lori Grein. “We look forward to another successful event filled with lots of fun.”

“The proceeds donated in prior years have supported grant requests allowing our teachers and staff to enhance the teaching and learning environment for our students,” said RCS Foundation Coordinator Joann Beydoun. “The RCS Foundation truly appreciates Suzanne and Jennifer’s passion and commitment to organize this event and support the students and staff throughout the district.”
