The Music Boosters are proud to be the sole charitable partners for Fanwood’s 5th St. Patrick’s Day Fundraiser. We will be selling tickets at the SPF Jazz Festival on 2/27. Tickets are also available at Oh’Brian’s Pourhouse and Mara’s Café and Bakery. If you purchase tickets at Mara’s, they will give you a 10% discount on your next visit! ($7 in advance, $10 at the door). This exciting event will be held at the Fanwood Train Station on Saturday, March 7. There will be a large heated tent. So the event will go on rain or shine!
It is sponsored by Oh’Brian’s Pourhouse and the Fanwood Business and Professional Association. We will have the District Music Program represented by various student performers, throughout the afternoon. So come on out to see hear some music, and enjoy some great traditional Irish Fare including Corned Beef, Cabbage, Potato, Pretzels, Guinness Mac and Cheese and Hot Dogs. There will also be Face Painting, Tricky Tray and lots of fun. The best part is that all profits go to the SPF Music Boosters, to support district wide music programs. See you there!
