What is an Auction Social?
An Auction Social is a mini fundraising event sponsored by parents. It’s a great opportunity to socialize with other parents and friends from HCS. Each event is open to a limited number of guests for a set price per person. You can attend the event simply by signing up on a first come, first served basis. Registration will also be available during the Fall Auction on Wednesday, November 16. It is fine to sign up for two spaces (e.g. If you and your spouse both want to attend, you would sign up twice for that particular event). These events are now open for registration online. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email. Note: When ordering, please be sure to click through all the PayPal screens until the confirmation page.

January 9, 2017: Positively Pilates Fitness Social
Join your very own HCS mom, Caitlin Loria, for a Pilates Sculpt fitness FUNdraiser. Meet fellow HCS parents while sweating and smiling your way to a better body in the New Year. Some of the benefits of practicing Pilates include core strength, more flexibility, improved posture, streamlined muscle tone, relief from back and joint pain, weight loss and a happier YOU! In Pilates Sculpt, we work the muscles to efficiency and not fatigue so that you leave class feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and energized. This class is also open to any interested 7th & 8th grade students. (There is also an option to buy a class card at the FUNdraiser and 10% of those proceeds go to Hoboken Charter School!!)
March 17, 2017: St Patrick’s Day – Taste of Ireland
Sláinte! Join us for an epic St. Patrick’s Day party with bagpipes, plenty of Guinness and a few Irish surprises. Let’s be honest, we are all way too old to be out in Hoboken on St. Patrick’s Day so instead come party like a rockstar with your fellow HCS parents. We will start with a tasting of Irish cheeses and whiskeys and move on to some classic Irish dishes for dinner. Taste some of Ireland’s best single malts and of course stick around for some Irish coffee to close out the night.

Mangiare, bere e divertirsi! Come eat, drink and be merry as we celebrate the sweet return of spring at our Tuscan inspired BBQ.

June 10, 2017: Roofdeck Filipino Boodle Fight
Join us for a Roofdeck Filipino Boodle Fight! What’s a Boodle Fight you ask?? A laid-back, super-fun style of entertaining where Filipino delicacies are served in piles on a banana leaf covered table…for guests to enjoy with their hands! The term began in Philippine military mess halls where the “fight” referred to soldiers slugging it out and grabbing food before it runs out. Don’t worry, at our roofdeck bash we’ll have plenty of food, fun, and forks for all!!! This event is hosted by 7th grade parents Zarah Pua and Nai Zhang (bringing their favorite Filipino specialties) and Julie Hartigan (professional chef and overall lover of party-throwing). Join us for a night under the stars filled with delicious dishes, great tunes, and a potent tiki bar.
