WOOD-RIDGE, N.J. — Hundreds came out to see Elmwood Park students look their best for a fashion show fundraiser Thursday night at Fiesta banquet room in Wood-Ridge to support project graduation.
Several seniors acted as the models to bring out the crowd along with more than 300 different raffle prizes.
Laura Maros, Project Graduation Committee president, said it's important to give the students a proper send-off in June.
"It's really the last time they get to hang around as a group," Maros told Daily Voice.
The destination has been picked for project graduation, but Maros said it's a secret.
Thursday's models included Ashley Barrios, Collin Burke, Evan Cassilli, Alessia Catania, Xavier Drakeford, Jamine Fleming, Nicole Laskowski, Danielle Libonati, Savanna Magliacane, David Maros, Matthew Matteo, Marcus Picinich, Julissa Santillan, Stephanie Siracusa, Victoria Sirianni, and Kristijan Todorovski.
The models showed of formal wear by Ariel Inspirations in North Arlington, followed by a more casual look. They also carried masks with a Mardi Gras theme.
