NORTH ARLINGTON, N.J. -- North Arlington's Queen of Peace High School is still in danger of shuttering, but its salvation is now closer, with two large gifts from alumni, The Record has reported.
The local archdiocese has given the Catholic high school until this Thursday to raise $1 million. Two large, recent donations are by 1980 graduates who are also now businesspeople in Texas, according to The Record. Another similarity is that both donations are conditional on certain fundraising goals.
Jeanette Cerna has pledged $200,000 -- half for long-term needs and the other half contingent on the school raising $700,000 of its million-dollar goal, The Record has reported. Similarly, Tom Klein committed $250,000 to the school -- half for later and $150,000 if the school raises $850,000.
The school is hosting a "Defend the Alamo" fundraising event at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, at Ralph Borgess Field. Read the full The Record article here.
