(MAHWAH, NJ) – Fall under the spell of a night of laughs with the brothers of Alpha Phi Delta National Italian Heritage Fraternity who will host Preserve the Magic, a comedy-hypnosis fundraiser to support the Ramapo Valley County Reservation in the H-Wing auditorium on Thursday, March 29 at 9 p.m.

The Ramapo Reservation was designated a Wilderness Area in 1972 with 741 acres of open space.  The reservation now boasts 4,000 acres of permanent open space.  Over the past year, the reservation’s parks, roads, and bridges have suffered damages from Hurricane Irene and other storms and flooding.  Many trees have fallen, wreaking havoc on the reservation’s structures. 

Proceeds from Preserve the Magic will help restore areas damaged by last summer’s storms.     

The event is open to the public and the College.  Tickets will be sold at the door along with refreshments.  For more information, please contact Philanthropy Chair of Alpha Phi Delta Fraternity and Inter-Fraternity Council President Marc Syslo at or visit the event’s Facebook page under Preserve the Magic.
