Project Graduation is an event started back in the late '80s which has caught on at many high schools around the country, to keep kids safe on Graduation night. It's an all night, drug free, alcohol free party, where the entire graduation class can spend one great last night together celebrating their accomplishment. At Monmouth Regional High School, Project Graduation has been around in one form or another for quite a while. It's now sponsored and almost entirely funded the the PTSA.
For 2017, we are doing the same thing we did last year, since it was so successful. We've rented out the the entire Jersey Shore Arena in Wall Township and are bringing in an entertainment company with games, activities, a DJ, and an entertainer.The party starts at about 10:00PM on Graduation night, Friday, June 16, and runs to about 5:30AM. It's a fantastic and fun night. If you don't believe me, check out pictures from last year's event.
Running Project Graduation is a massive effort, involves raising a ton of money, and requires a lot of people to make it all go. If you would like to help us out in any way, or if you would like to donate money or goods to Project Graduation, please CONTACT US. Help of any kind is greatly appreciated.
Our Bingo Night and Gift Auction event is our single biggest fund raiser of the year, but none of it works without donations from generous individuals and businesses like you. If you would like to make a donation of any kind, click the button above for our donation flyer or CLICK HERE for the official donation request letter.
Some kids might think that this is a silly event and it won't be very much fun, but that could not be further from the truth. It's a great night, and the last night, this group will ever spend together as a class, at least until their reunion.
Don't believe it's a good time?

We really need help asking for donations from various businesses. It's really easy, you just pick a place you think might donate, reach out to them in person, by mail, or on line, and give them a Donation Request Letter. It's easy, and there are many generous businesses out there.
Not sure what businesses to ask? Check our Business Donation Master Spreadsheet for a list of hundreds of businesses. Pick a few that don't have names already assigned and get to work. Once you decide to contact a place, send mail to Wendy Abrams (email@example.com) and let her know so she can update the list.
