Chappaqua School Foundation Host Dad's Night Out

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – Chappaqua dads played pick-up basketball and eat pizza at Horace Greeley High School on Monday as part of the Chappaqua School Foundation’s first annual dad’s night out.

The nonprofit foundation invited district fathers to participate in a three-on-three basketball tournament and offered food and refreshments in-between.

“We’re here to raise awareness for the foundation and, ultimately, generate support for the school district,” said David Gefsky, who is on the foundation’s board of directors. “We think the foundation plays a central role in the community and the school district. And the more involvement we have, the better we can do.”

The event comes a few weeks after the foundation held a mom’s night out on Oct. 13, featuring mentalist David Levitan at the Chappaqua Library. With its year-round events, the 18-year-old organization has raised $1.5 million for the Chappaqua School District, according to President Michael Kaufman.

While nearly 60 fathers paid $30 to compete for prizes, Kaufman said that money was not the motivating factor in organizing Monday night’s event. “We’re not looking at it in terms of dollars really, just building awareness,” Kaufman said. “A lot of guys in the community are not as familiar with the foundation.”

Horace Greeley High School students also participated in the event. Some played with their dads in the tournament, while some members of the school’s basketball team served as referees during the later rounds.
