Second Annual NP Night Out, Sept. 21
Tuesday, September 17, 2013 • 1:23pm
The New Providence Athletic Foundation invites you to attend the second annual “NP Night Out”, which will be held Saturday, Sept. 21 from 5 to 9 p.m. at New Providence High School’s Lieder Field. All are welcome to attend.
Our seventh annual fundraiser will help the NPAF pay off its remaining debt on the Lieder Field renovation, which began back in 2007 and has provided $1 million in improvements to the complex without any taxpayer impact. More than 3,000 residents utilize the Lieder Complex each year, and this year the NPAF wants to finish off paying the debt incurred to build it.
The format will be similar to last year, where families are invited to come test their skills (speed drills, shootouts, passing plays, etc.), enjoy some dinner, and experience a night on the turf and under the lights. New this year: The New York Knicks Groove Truck will come to host basketball fun and games under the lights. Plus the highlight of the night with the return of the “Pioneer Cup” running race competition among boys and girls Grades K-6.
NPAF Event Coordinator Bill Harvey shares that AW Roberts is preparing for its title defense of the Pioneer Cup. “Last year’s competition was very intense. Since the first day of school, the kids have been talking about the races and which school will own the bragging rights this year”.
A BBQ Style fare and beverages is included in the entrance fee including specialty items prepared by Prestige Diner and Galileo’s Restaurant. The cost is $25 per person or $100 per family maximum and is tax deductible. You may pay at the door with cash or check made payable to “New Providence Athletic Foundation”.
Among the raffle items will be Giants Football tickets with on-field pregame passes, Stella & Dot Jewelry, North Face gear, and a tailgate package donated by McGrath’s Paint & Hardware. (add other stuff ).
With a large walk up crowd expected, we encourage families to sign up and pay in advance. You may download the event flyer at http://clearpointdesigns.com/NPAF2013NightOut.html
