Maplewood PTA recently held their big annual fundraiser at Matteo’s Restaurant, and the event couldn’t have been more successful or more enjoyable. Maplewood moms made it a night to remember with enough food, laughter, and camaraderie to last until next year. Maplewood PTA President Ms. Nancy Hauser put together a tremendous crew of volunteers to take care of everything, from an amazing assortment of raffle baskets to the last detail that makes for a great event. The PTA would like to thank the Maplewood school community and the many local businesses that graciously supported this cultural arts fundraiser. Proceeds from this event go to the many excellent cultural arts programs that are brought in by the PTA for Maplewood students.
