On Wednesday, January 31, 2018 nearly 200 EC students, alumni, and friends came together for the Annual Athletic Boosters Beefsteak Dinner at The Brownstone in Paterson. The Brownstone is known for the quality of their beefsteak and they did not disappoint. Tom Dykhouse, Executive Director and Head of School welcomed our guests and began the night with prayer. As the antipasto was served, guests were challenged to use their mobile devices to bid on the silent auction items and to make a contribution to EC. Table #5 made the largest donation and earned the privilege of First to the Beef! And boy, did they pack it away. The Saranwrap Ball was a big hit with plenty of prizes to go around. According to one guest, “The best part of this night is the chance to greet and catch up with so many old friends from EC”. Others might suggest is was the beef, the hot apple cider donuts served just before the ice cream dessert , or event the slide show of EC Athletics through the years that was best. For EC, it was a great night of good food, good friends, and good fundraising. Thanks to all that helped ups raise $9,000.00 for Eastern Christian School.
