BRIARCLIFF, N.Y. - Those wanting to dance, dine and be divine have until Thursday to purchase tickets for the Briarcliff Manor Education Foundation's "Walk the Red Carpet" fundraiser.
The event, at Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff, features a Hollywood-style night with dancing, dining and auctions all in support of Briarcliff schools. The red carpet will be rolled out for the guests' entrance - complete with a visit from the paparazzi.
"Attending the spring event is a wonderful way to support our schools and enjoy an evening in the community," Liz Susman Karp and Maura Bohan, co-presidents of the education foundation, said in a statement.
At last year's spring event, the foundation raised more than $50,000, a $10,000 increase from 2011. At this year's event, which will be held April 19, former BMEF Board Member Heather McVeigh will receive a lifetime achievement award for her contributions in organizing the annual event. After joining the education foundation's board in 1997, McVeigh served as the co-chair for the spring event in each of her 13 years on the board.
Silent and live auctions will be held for a variety of prizes. Raffle tickets and tickets for the celebration can be purchased by visiting the education foundation's website .
The fundraiser is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Friday, April 19, and end at about midnight.
