Ovations for Relief Benefit Concert
Educators from across the Parsippany-Troy Hills School District will leave their classrooms and offices for the stage as they showcase their talents in a benefit performance for the victims of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
An elementary school principal playing solo on the clarinet, a high school English teacher reading minds and a Social Studies supervisor as part of a folk duo are just a few of the nearly two dozen acts on the program on Thursday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. in the Parsippany High School auditorium.
The event, billed as “Ovations for Relief,” is a collaboration between the Parsippany-Troy Hills Education Association (PTHEA) and the Parsippany-Troy Hills Township School District.
“Schools helping schools” has been the motto of the drive, which has inspired a host of PTHEA members and others to join in on stage for a two-hour variety show. Professional music teachers will open the program followed by an array of teachers, administrators and support staff, many of whom have never performed in public.
One hundred percent of the evening’s proceeds will be sent to the recipient schools. Additionally, they will receive letters of hope and encouragement from elementary school students from throughout the District.
Admission to the event is $15 advance purchase through Oct. 30 or $20 at the door and $10 for children. Tickets may be purchased at any Parsippany-Troy Hills public school main office. A complimentary light pre-show buffet will be offered beginning at 6:30 p.m.
