Old Tappan helps pediatric cancer research with ‘Day of Gold’

Hearts of gold came together for a Day of Gold in the beginning of October to raise funds for pediatric cancer research.

The school district raised $2,174 on Oct. 7 for a “Day of Gold,” during which students and faculty were encouraged to bring in a few dollars to help raise money for Josephine’s Garden Fund, which helps pediatric cancer research by supporting the Josephine Elle Hartung-Rispoli research lab.

Old Tappan Education Association President Matt Capilli said he heard about the fundraiser and reached out to its organizer, Heidi Hartung-Rispoli, about holding an event in the school district.
