We were overwhelmed by the success of Showdown Montclair. Overwhelmed by the sold out attendance. Overwhelmed by all you amazing donors who supported our acts. And certainly overwhelmed by the incredible talent that took the stage. We could not have asked for a more fun and warm-hearted group of performers - every single one of them excited to raise funds for our schools.


Check out the articles and photos below for the highlights from our party with a purpose!





MFEE Executive Director Masiel Rodriquez-Vars, a member of St. Peter’s added, "Dr. Johnson's talk on ‘Derailing Racism’ was a powerful way to celebrate MLK's legacy. St. Peter Claver is home to some of the families who helped launch our magnet schools and continues to serve a diverse community. Her insight and resource-sharing inspired us and gave us concrete ways to continue Dr. King's work."

Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence (MFEE) is in the midst of its “Publicly Proud” Annual Appeal to raise funds to support the Montclair Public Schools. The ambitious campaign seeks to recruit 500 donors who believe in the power of public schools to transform lives, our community, and our country.
