ROCKLEIGH, N.J..– The Old Tappan Parent Teacher Organization held its Sip and Savor fundraising event Thursday night at the Rockleigh Country Club.
Proceeds were raised to build a new Media Center in Charles DeWolf Middle School.
The OTPTO has already raised $50,000 towards the $95,000 project, Executive Board Member Melissa Del Rosso said.
"The OTPTO is partnering with the Old Tappan School District, lead by Superintendent Danielle DaGiau, to complete this project at the beginning of the 2016–17 school year," Del Rosso said. "The vision is to completely renovate the current CDW Library into a Modern Tech-centric Media Center with a small conference room, comfortable lounge area and multi-purpose space for quiet and group study, as well as a Broadcasting Center."
Around 200 guests enjoyed whiskey and wine tastings, an auction, tricky tray and 50/50 raffle.
"We had a nice turn out," said Diana Morrissey. "We've done a Blue Jean Ball, a fashion show. This was something different."
