The Kilkenny House will host the fourth annual ‘Caroling for Cranford’ fundraiser on Dec. 23 from 5 to 10 p.m. to benefit the Cranford High School Music Program. Also, Kilkenny will launch its annual Toys for Tots collection to support Cranford Family Care.

Donations of toys will be accepted at Kilkenny House until the eve of caroling on Dec. 23.

The Cranford High Madrigal Choir will sing carols for diners of the Kilkenny House for three settings at 5 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Dec. 23. 10 percent of proceeds from the evening will go directly to the High School’s music program.

“Cranford Madrigal Choir's annual caroling event is always a highlight of the year at Kilkenny House. I am proud to host this popular fundraiser to support Cranford's high school music education program,” said Barry O’Donovan, owner of The Kilkenny House.  “Additionally, we are pleased to help Cranford Family Care's efforts to make sure that local children receive toys for Christmas.  Donations will be accepted from December 1st through the conclusion of our Caroling event on December 23rd."

Cranford High School’s music director, Anthony Rafaniello, said it’s important to have the community support music in the Township’s schools.

“Working with these kids is so inspiring.  Their passion and enthusiasm for music is infectious and they bring such joy to audiences, particularly during the holiday season,” said Rafaniello.

The funds raised through the event will go directly to the musical education program.
