Wall of Recognition dinner

The Belleville Education Foundation (BEF) will sponsor a dinner honoring inductees onto the Wall of Recognition. The four honorees selected by the Belleville Board of Education (BOE) for 2011 have made profound impacts on society since their days in the Belleville School District.

Last month, BOE trustee Joseph Longo, announced the newest class: Brothers Gary and Frank Mascitelli, decorated Vietnam War veterans; Tom Apicella, popular Belleville businessman and Dr. Cyrus Amato, distinguished dental professional.

Oct. 19 will be the day of celebration. After an afternoon assembly at the Connie Francis Music Theatre at Belleville High, a VIP reception for inductees and their supporters will be held at The Chandelier at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m. Tickets are available for the dinner for $75. The VIP reception and dinner combination may be purchased for $150. (The BEF is a 501-{C}3 non profit organization.) For more information, call Barbara Freda at 973-650-3849.

“Since our inception in early 2009, the BEF has distributed grant monies and capital expenditure funds of nearly $25,000 to worthy education needs unsatisfied by the tax revenue structure,” said Freda. “And, we have more money to give.”
