The Friends of Montclair High School Robotics, Inc. held a fund raising event at Just Jakes at 30 Park Ave., Montclair, NJ. One of the highlights of the night is the honoring of some of our donors and sponsors including Peter Tschudy. Mr. Tschudy, a carpenter, cabinet maker and contractor, donated thousands of dollars worth of his time, energy and materials building field elements or obstacles for the students so they could test and modify their robot to perform optimally for their competitions. Peter Tschudy serves the Montclair area with home improvement services, see more at his website.
Another honored sponsor was Schweers Technology Inc. who donated $500 towards the funding of additional hours in the auto shop so that students can complete the robot before their first competition scheduled for April 1st in Bridgewater, NJ. Schweers Technology also has a history of hiring Montclair High School Robotics students in part-time positions. We are grateful for their continued support of robotics students.
During the fundraiser, a 50/50 raffle yielded hundreds of dollars. We thank the winner, Leslie Rosen, for donating her winnings back towards the funding of additional auto shop hours as well.
We thank all 30 attendees at the dinner for their donations and participation.
