LWA fundraiser nets $132K for Woodmere school


Parents, faculty, alumni and friends adding up to 290 for dinner raised $132,000 at the annual Lawrence Woodmere Academy spring fundraiser at The Woodmere Club on April 28. The event included a golf outing, cocktails, dinner and a 57-item raffle.

In addition, school trustee emeriti Peter Boneparth (class of 1976 and father of two LWA graduates) and Jim Confino, whose daughter Jamie graduated in 2009, were honored at the dinner.

Some of the items raffled were JetBlue airline tickets and iPads, and the auctioning of New York Giants field passes and a ski/golf vacation. Serving on the fundraiser’s committee were the Iannelli, Arnow, Cesare/Simonaro, Eigens, Fays, Koss, Shlomms and Vonas families.
