SPARC Evening of Song hits all the right notes!

For the past six years SPARC (Summit Performing Arts Resource Committee) has put together a festive fundraiser “SPARC’ling Evening of Song. ” This highly anticipated event, held this year on Friday, October 30, features a full evening of performances by Summit High School alumni, a silent and a live auction, adult beverages and delicious food. The theme of this year’s elegant event is a Masquerade Party and will be held – for the first time – at the Grand Summit Hotel.  The mission of SPARC is “to promote the performing arts in the Summit, NJ public schools, recognize student achievement, and continuously enrich productions through advocacy, financial support, and education initiatives.”

Selections will include Broadway favorites, and Summit’s own David Peck and Yoav Efron will be the accompanists. Matthew Block, Director of Human Resources for the district will act as Master of Ceremonies.  Additionally, SPARC’ling Evening of Song features both a traditional Silent Auction and a “Reverse Auction”, which is a live auction, where opening bids starts high, and then progress backwards in incremental levels. Over the years, donations raised through the Silent and Reverse Auctions have enabled SPARC to fund microphone purchases at the high school, musical rights to productions at both the high school and the middle school, as well as Speech & Debate (forensics) workshops at the high school. During the 2014-2015 school year alone, SPARC funded more than $45,000 in grants throughout the Summit school district.

So grab your mask and come out to support the performing arts programs at ALL seven Summit schools! Tickets are available online through the  SPARC website for $90 and will be $95 at the door (if space allows.) You may also mail a check – or donation – to SPARC, P.O. Box 462, Summit, NJ 07901.
