The Roselle Park High School Interactive Club had a successful Pasta Night last month at the opening night of “Little Shop Of Horrors”. With food that was donated by local eateries and businesses including Casa de Trevi, Dunkin Donuts, La Catena, Sun Tavern, Valentino’s, Vintage Express, Applebee’s, Chestnut Chateau, Cranford Florist, Dairy Queen, Mario’s Tutto Bene, Napoli, Nu-Way Concessionaires, Olive Garden, Proud Papa’s, Padonna’s, and Pinho’s Bakery.
The Interact Club collected approximately $1,200.00 which was donated to the Roselle Park Volunteer Rescue Squad and the American Stroke Association.
Although this was the third year in a row that the dinner sold out, with two years ago selling out around 6:30 p.m., and then last year at around 6 o’clock, the response this response was overwhelming and supportive.
RPHS teacher and club advisor Mr Vincent Fucci stated, “We knew that this year being the [Interact Club’s] 10th anniversary, the executive officers and I wanted to make this year special. We seem to have accomplished that goal by selling out five minutes after we opened the doors. Thank you to everyone that contributed. All of our hard work and dedication paid off.”
