AACT Students Raise $1,500 at Spring Fling Fundraiser

(North Bergen, NJ—April 11, 2014) The Academy of Architectural and Contemporary Themes at High Tech High School (AACT) hosted its second fundraiser, known as the “Spring Fling,” to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, raising $1,500 so far, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech.

Held in the program’s facility in the North Hudson Center from 5th-9th period, AACT reached out to the local community, raffling prizes donated by Applebee’s, Dunkin Donuts, Chipotle, Café Archetypus, and many other local vendors. Students and staff took part in carnival games, table tennis tournaments, indulged in homemade food and desserts, and listened to a live DJ. Some even won goldfish as prizes.

“The Make-A-Wish Foundation is very dear to our academy,” says Jamie Velazquez, AACT’s history teacher and the facilitator of the Spring Fling Fundraiser. “Our first fundraiser was held two years ago and honored one of our AACT students who participated in the Make-A-Wish program during his battle with childhood leukemia.”

AACT seniors and juniors, led by Guttenberg resident Dunia Fernandez, Ayushi Khanchandani of Secaucus, and West New York resident Jalisa Valladares, helped make the Spring Fling such a success. AACT plans other fundraisers soon to reach its donation goal of $3,000 to grant a child's wish.

This year, AACT will honor North Bergen resident Caitlyn Orbe, a freshman in High Tech, diagnosed with cancer at the age of 9. To learn more about the Make-A-Wish Foundation, please go to
