The Education Foundation of Little Silver (EFLS), a nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the education of students in the Little Silver Public Schools, is busy preparing for its annual fundraising event, which will be held on Friday, March 2, 2018, at The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel in Asbury Park. Sponsorship opportunities and tickets to the “Inspire & Shine” themed party are still available.
Through the generous donations of Little Silver residents and local area businesses, the annual EFLS event – now in its 23rd year – helps ensure that Little Silver teachers and students can access innovative educational tools and current technology without raising the school district’s cost structure and local tax burden. In 2017, the EFLS raised more than $100,000 to fund grants for items such as Chromebooks, Smart TVs, and Surface Pros that were placed directly in the hands of the Little Silver community’s children and teachers. The EFLS is a nonprofit organization that relies entirely on local business and family sponsors, the Little Silver teachers and Board of Education, as well as the countless individuals who volunteer, attend and donate to its fundraising event each year.
“Our annual fundraiser is a great night out, but it’s also a critically important opportunity for our community to support the education of our children,” said Tracey Wetmore, EFLS President. “I’d like to encourage everyone to consider their own contribution to our mission, whether it’s by sponsoring, attending or otherwise supporting our fundraiser this year.”
