An Awareness and Fundraising Campaign
March 12:  Concert for a Cure
March 5: Sponsorship Night at Moe’s Southwest Grill, Mahwah

Organized as a Senior Project by Ramapo College Students

MAHWAH – Some of Ramapo College’s finest student musicians will perform a concert in March to raise money for the North Jersey Metro Chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The performance will feature Tom Nicholes, Rachael Nagy, Andrew Nieporent and the Nonspecifics and The Jay Everett Band, most of whom play regularly on and off campus. Food and beverages will be available and, in addition, attendees will have the opportunity to win raffle prizes that have been donated by area businesses.  The event is open to the public.

Student planners of the concert are Jessica Anton, Brittany Carroll and Claire Sarlo who have undertaken the project as part of the Media/Cinema Studies “Senior Project” course.
It will be made possible through co-sponsorship with RamaShows, an on campus organization.

“I have always wanted to put together an event of this caliber, especially for such a worthy, yet often overlooked cause,” said Claire Sarlo.  The North Jersey Metro Chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society was chosen as the recipient of money raised because Brittany Carroll interned for the non-profit organization during the Fall 2008 semester and wanted to continue her work with the MS Society.

The students opted to launch their campaign during March, National Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month.   The observance will have a kick-off sponsorship at Moe’s Southwest Grill in Mahwah on March 5, during which the restaurant will donate 10% of its profits to the Multiple Sclerosis Society.  Patrons must present a coupon, available at the restaurant, to receive the discount.

The concert will be presented Thursday, March 12 in Room SC-219 in the Robert A. Scott Student Center on the campus of Ramapo College.  Doors will open at 8:15 p.m.; there is a $3 entrance fee.   For more information, contact Jessica Anton,
