Family Fun and Food Trucks to Benefit the KL Foundation

by Abbe Wichman

On June 6th, an evening filled with food, sports, and music will kick off what the Katonah Lewisboro Foundation aims to make an annual event. “Food Truck and Family Fun Friday” will be held at Lewisboro Town Park from 5:00 p.m. through 9:00 p.m. All profits will benefit the Foundation.

“Food trucks have become quite the rage and we thought this would be a fun way to get the community out on a Friday night to enjoy some local offerings and new tastes,” says Madeline Polemeni, chair of the KL Foundation. Food trucks scheduled to be at the event include Katonah’s Sweetooth Bakery, Mt. 
Kisco’s Ladle of Love, and The Poutine King from Yonkers. There will be some surprises as well. 

But you can’t have an evening of good food without a way of burning off some calories. The Lewisboro Baseball Association will be getting everyone onto the fields with a variety of events, the pool will be open until 7:30 p.m., and people can dance the night away to the sounds of Halfway to Sanity, a band 
whose members include John Jay Middle School (JJMS) teacher Jesse Weiss and Katonah Elementary School teacher Craig Jettelson.

There will also be large inflatables, including a gaga court, which is a variation of dodgeball. And students from TADA at Katonah Arts Center, run by Golden’s Bridge’s Ann Marie Gerard Galler, will be on hand for a special performance.

“The schools individually hold their own activities but this is a way to have students and their families from across all our schools to support a worthy cause,” says Polemeni. The Foundation’s mission is to raise and provide funds to enrich the educational experience of the children of the Katonah Lewisboro 
School District. Funds have been raised for video equipment, the sound system at the JJMS auditorium and for a number of pilot science units. 

There will be a minimal entrance fee for families to attend the event. For further information email Madeline Polemeni at contact@klfound.org or check the Foundation’s website at www.klfound.org.
