East Orange Senior Center
To celebrate the re-opening of the newly rennovated Park
Crescent Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center at 480 North Walnut
Street in East Orange, there was a special event staged for
donors and their guests that rivaled the Hollywood Academy
The entrance to the center was specially decorated for the
event to resemble "Oscar Night", complete with red
carpet and throngs of happy greeters.
As guests arrived for the event, their cars were
parked by valets, and they stepped onto the red carpet at the
entrance to the building.
Students from Cicely Tyson School of Performing
and Fine Arts played the roles of paparazzi and autograph seekers
as guests ran the happy gauntlet on their way to the festivities.
Both the students and the guests seemed to enjoy the
"living theatre" moment as they became part of history.
