Carteret, NJ – Mayor Daniel J. Reiman has announced that the Children’s Charity Trust Fund has organized a Broadway Musical Fundraiser event featuring West Side Story. The event, which will be hosted the evening of February 21st, will include transportation to and from the Palace Theater on Broadway via luxury coach bus, a buffet dinner at Chris Michael’s Steakhouse of Woodbridge, along with a mid-mezzanine ticket to the show.


The entire entertainment package is being offered for donations of $150.00.


“This promises to be a memorable evening and a great value,” Mayor Reiman has said, “featuring a musical that is as much a part of American history as it is great entertainment, followed by some fantastic dining.”


Participants will meet at the Memorial Municipal Building in Carteret for a 1:30 p.m. bus departure on February 21st. The musical will begin at 3:00.


The Mayor’s Children’s Charity Trust Fund is a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization, established in 2003 to provide Carteret’s children with a monetary resource for education, athletics, and health. The Trust Fund was created with the understanding that many children are often high achievers with great potential, and who with the proper financial support can establish their own paths to success.


The Children’s Charity Trust Fund has raised funding for scholarships, arts and culture, athletic programs, other charities, and a variety of programs and services that benefit local children. Such events have included the Children’s Charity Carnival, Christmas Festival, Charity Ball and Silent Auction, along with many other varying charity events.


By the end of this year, it is expected that the Mayor’s Children’s Charity Trust Fund will have raised over $250,000.


“Our charity has done a lot over the past 7 years to raise funds for children’s programs and scholarships,” Mayor Reiman added. “Fundraisers like our Broadway event have proven to be enriching for participants and beneficial to the children of Carteret.”
