Virtual Faculty Follies Show Helps Support Community Cupboard

Staff members from across the Central High School District recently came together virtually for a night of entertainment to help support the Community Cupboard.

The Faculty Follies is a district-wide faculty talent show held every year in February to raise money for the district-run food bank, the Community Cupboard. During the event, teachers and administrators take the stage in live performance. The night includes everything from live bands to magic acts, and from lip sync battles to dance routines.

“It is a true One Voice, One Message experience for a fantastic cause,” said Cheryl Fontana, the district's Director of the Fine & Performing Arts.

During quarantine, faculty members teamed up with the Broadcast Program to bring some of this fun to our community.

"We know how much the Community Cupboard needs our help right now, so we thought what better way than to bring some entertainment to our families and staff at home?" added Fontana. "An email went out to staff members who typically participate and within hours we had people jumping on the opportunity to be a part of this. The incredible work of our Bellmore-Merrick Broadcasting program during these past months has allowed for these virtual events to take place. Our hope is that community members will enjoy the performances and as a result help out the Cupboard in any way they are able."
