RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.– Ridgefield Park Junior/Senior High School alumni are trying to save the school's music program by holding a concert at Veteran's Park next month.
"It is our mission to keep the music flowing in Ridgefield Park High School for many years to come," said Danny Buttacavole, who created a GoFundMe page for the July 16 event.
Donations are needed to fund the stage, backline, sound system, and some other basics.
"Growing up in Ridgefield Park, we have been in these programs since our elementary school days at Lincoln School," Buttacavole said. "We have grown as musicians and as people in general, and we feel that it is now the time to give back to the program that has given us so much.
The show is scheduled to run from noon to 8 p.m. Admission is $15.
