From the AV Hero Fund:
The event of the season is about to take place and tickets are still available.
The Angelo Vayas AV Hero Fund Boogie Night Dance Party will be held Saturday, January 27, 7-11 pm at the Woodland.
The night will include music, a DJ, beer, wine, swag and more and is open to the public.
Proceeds from the evening benefit families in need in SOMA. In the last two years the AV Hero fund donated $17,750 to support families in town including help with medical bills, the backpack program, after school programs and the local food bank. In addition, the fund has donated $75,000 to the Hackensack University Medical Center (brain tumor center). A scholarship program to benefit SOMA students is in the works this year.
The fund was created to honor the memory Maplewood resident and business owner Angelo Vayas. A cherished member of the Maplewood community, Vayas died from a rare form of brain cancer in 2015 after a valiant battle.
Tickets are $30 per person and $4 for beer and wine
