MEF FASHION SHOW
The Montville Education Foundation had its Fall Fashion Show on October 23, 2016, at the Hanover Manor. Over 300 people attended the event. The afternoon kicked off with an amazing performance by Montville Township High School’s own School of Rock, originally funded by the MEF ten years ago, led by music teacher, Anthony Sia. The talented singers captivated the crowd with contemporary Hip-Hop music.
Special thanks to the Montville Teachers and Educators that walked the runway including Dr. Rene Rovtar, Superintendent of Montville Schools; Dr. Raj, Principal at Cedar Hill; Edward Fleischman, Supervisor of The Arts; and Teachers; Jason Banzhaf, Katelyn Kung, Kelly Sturdy-Lange, Linda Mesce, Carlyn Monastero, Janice Nasisi, Toni-Ann Raj, Keith Spector, Marisa Castronova-Wos, Gary Dedoussis and Michelle Voit.
Following the musical portion of the event was a spectacular fashion show, emceed by legendary New York DJ/Personality Marc “The Cope” Coppola. The show included models from throughout the district. Elementary students were wearing “kiddy couture”, high school students were dressed in elegant evening wear, and our talented teachers and administrators were dressed in casual and formal attire. Donating their time and talents to the afternoon were NYC Stylist Stacie Fitzgerald, who did a phenomenal job of coordinating styling and overseeing the children’s portion of the fashion show, while 580 South, Jos. A. Bank and Robin’s Closet, were responsible for having outfitted our adult models in fashion forward, contemporary style. Christina’s Salon of Montville and Bliss Hair Salon of Towaco, donated their time and talents by providing hair styling and makeup for models to be runway ready. The models walked the runway to the tunes spun by DJ Edgar of EME Entertainment. Thanks DJ Edgar!
A delectable three course meal was enjoyed by all. Finally, the excitement of the day peaked with a live auction of an original Oscar De La Renta gown and a bunk bed set designed and manufactured by Montville High School Students; the distribution of 140+ winners of over 140 sensational Tricky Tray baskets and a 50/50!
