Student Volunteers from CBA, Trinity Hall and Tim McCloone’s Holiday Express

LINCROFT, N.J. – December 16th, 2016 – On Thursday, December 15, 2016, CBA’s McKay Gym was once again transformed into a rocking holiday event hall as part of Tim McLoone’s Holiday Express Christmas Party. The event is held each year to help young adults with special needs get in the Christmas spirit.

“This is the best day of the year,” said Tim Sewnig, Director of CBA’s Campus Ministry. The Academy hosts several holiday season fundraisers each year—a winter coat drive, collection for children with pediatric cancer, and Thanksgiving food drive to name a few—but this event has a special place amongst them.

“This is my first year working the event,” said Arthur Adriano ’17. “We’re responsible for feeding the guests and getting them onto the dance floor.” With over 300 attendees and a whole lot of holiday cheer, the event was a resounding success that seems to grow with each year.

This is event marks just one of the 90 organizations in the tri-state area that Holiday Express will visit in 2016.
