It's Their Party And We're Not Invited
If you answered yes to both of those questions, then you could be eligible to attend the inaugural benefit for the five charters in the Hebrew Charter School Center's (HCSC) network (including Hatikvah, which is taking almost $300,000 from my small district next year).
"Afternoon at the Theater" is a private performance of Roald Dahl's "Matilda The Musical" at the Schubert Theater in NYC.
You need some serious disposable income if you want to attend this school fundraiser on steroids.

Or maybe you wish you could figure out a way to have this kind of fundraiser for your kid's school?
Well, here's all you have to do to make that happen!
Step One !
Get his daughter(who also happens to be married to a hedge fund guy)to run one of your schools and be on your board!!
Gather your closest, most loaded New York socialite friends to be on the Host and Event Commitees!!!
Jonathan Tisch Chairman and CEO of Loews Hotels.
Jeffrey Zucker President of CNN Worldwide
Lisa Applebaum Haddad She may have less name recognition, but she's the daughter of Eugene Applebaum, who sold his chain of drugstores to CVS in 1998 for a mere $1.48 BILLION. Oh, and Lisa happens to be a HCSC board member.You could spend hours searching through the list of developers, investment firm CEOs, and entrepreneurs named Bippy on the Host and Events Committees, and one just turns out to be more stinking rich than the next.
Traditional public schools that aren't backed by billionaires DO NOT have the kind of connections to pull off a private performance of a hit Broadway musical. Guess we'll just have to stick to bake sales, book fairs and box tops to get extra programs for our kids.
Can you imagine the fundraising efforts it would take in a public school to afford two teachers in every classroom? But these guys can make that happen in a couple hours on a Sunday afternoon.
Must be nice.
I have half a mind to hang out in front of the Schubert theater on Sunday with a big sign.
