AVON-BY-THE-SEA — The Promenade boardwalk restaurant was home to an array of food and gift baskets on Saturday, Oct. 28, in support of the annual fundraiser for Avon Elementary School students hosted by the Avon Home & School Association.
The fundraiser dinner welcomed student’s parents, association members and the public.
Attendees paid $50 per person to enjoy a full spread of hors d’oeuvres and entrees, including sushi and dessert. Choices ranged from poached pear arugula salad to eggplant parm spring rolls and chicken francese to horseradish crusted salmon.
The Avon Home & School Association [AHSA], the school’s parent-teacher organization is a group of class parents who help in raising money for class funds to purchase items such as class assemblies, field trips, computers and school-themed merchandise.
The Promenade owners Carmen and Liam Moloney also contributed by giving space, food and waitstaff service for the event.
“Carmen actually does fundraising for H.W. Mountz, so she got my number and she wanted to network so that Spring Lake PTA and Avon PTA kind of did something together to network,” said AHSA president, Maggie Kinkelam. “She said ‘why don’t you hold a fundraiser here… and it would be awesome if we had a community partner.’”
