“Day of Gold”
The Northern Valley Education Association will be participating in the fourth annual Josephine's Garden “Day of Gold” for National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The Northern Valley, along with over 30 districts in Bergen County, will be raising funds on September 19th to benefit the Josephine’s Garden Fund at the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital.
A “Day of Gold” was started by Heidi Hartung-Rispoli who lost her daughter Josephine to a rare brain tumor when she was 7 years old.
The NVEA is asking all staff and students to wear gold on September 19th and donate $3 for a pin that was designed by Josephine’s mother.
All proceeds will go to the hospital for pediatric cancer research and to the families of the children battling this disease.
