Maplewood music lovers enjoyed a fundraiser last night at St. James's Gate Publick House for the HK Foundations Center, featuring the sounds of local band The Snakes. Visitors relaxed with drinks, good food and much-needed air conditioning. The donation jar filled up quickly, and The Snakes were heard to sing and shout, "I go to St. James and drink 50 pints of beer!"
The HK Foundations Center is an HK Community Fund program that focuses on teaching digital media skills to 7th - 12th graders by offering free workshops taught by industry trained professionals.
The HK Community Fund's mission is "to join the neighbors of Maplewood and South Orange in meeting its educational, community and cultural needs."
