Florham Park Education Foundation Virtual Wine Tasting A Success
The mission of the Florham Education Foundation (FPEF) is to strengthen public education in the Florham Park School District through advocacy, fundraising, and investment in programs that empower every student to achieve both academic and personal success. The Foundation awards teacher grants and funds a Community Care program that helps families in the FP school district with essential needs such as food and/or school supplies.
On Thursday, November 12, 2020, the Foundation hosted a virtual wine tasting fundraiser in
partnership with Opici Wines and Main Street Wine Cellars, raising $4,000 in support of the
organization’s efforts. Tasha Bias, the Foundation President, expressed “We are happy the event was so successful. We appreciate the generosity of the local businesses and Florham Park residents who participated. All the money we raised goes right back to the teachers and students in the Florham Park School District.” Tickets were priced at $100 per household. In addition to 4 bottles of wine, registrants received a wine bag, wine journal, corkscrew, sunglasses, a pen and food pairing suggestions. All items were personally delivered. The event, which was held via Zoom, included raffle prizes and an informative presentation was led by George Palmieri, Director of Education for Opici Wines. Karen Stein, a resident of Florham Park and science teacher at Ridgedale Middle School, chaired the enjoyable event.
