  1. Congrats and good luck to all attending. What a wonderful thing to do. Who cares about a little noise when it’s for such a great cause?

    My daughter, her friends and hundreds of others will be there in honor of friends and family effected by cancer.

  2. It’s nice that they let us know in advance. It’s hard to be upset at an event to raise awareness/funds for cancer but is it really necessary to go the entire night… is it possible we could convince them to do it the entire day? This Event directly effects Westgate (The stadium is in our backyard), where you have almost a 1000 families with young children who have a hard time sleeping with that level of noise. I know because last year I was kept up all Friday night with intermittent raucous karoake and whatnot. Maybe in the future we can get them to hold this event during the day..
    Incidentally how can one donate to this event?

  3. I agree with local, truly a wonderful cause. And thanks TLS for the warning, because it can get scary on Shabbos not knowing what’s going on and no way to find out

  4. disagree — if you live within proximity to the school (Westgate), you will be up all night as I was last year . . .I’m not against a good cause, but the noise level was unnecessarily high

  5. Their fundraising goal according to the site is $1,000 !!

    Maybe next year, instead of having the event, you can appeal to Westgate residents . . .we can raise $1,000 in half an hour

  6. Ok — scratch my last comment, they have raised over $30,000 all together. That is impressive, but even so, the noise is ridiculous, they can still raise that amount and have the event over by 2 am, as opposed to 6 am with music blaring

  7. To all those complaining how is this different from the bonfires that were going on with blaring music well after midnight?

  8. those bonfires and music did not go until 6 am . . .I agree with you that there should be more sensitivity from all sides, but there is a difference between midnight and early morning . . .

  9. The school was built there to be away from homes and therefore not bothering people with activities. Then Westgate was built.

  10. westgate was built about 2 years before the school . . .and I am sure that the residents in the area in Jackson are not all thrilled with the activities, and they were there long before . . .

  11. Let’s call a spade a spade.

    If it were the other way around and West Gate was
    having a all night “music blaring” extravaganzia jackson would’nt stand for it, so why the double standard?

  12. I see no differance to the bands then the loud bonfires a few weeks ago, on both sides of the issue its only one night, bonfires and benefit, I think one night is not gonna cause all that much trouble, as an aside I donated 200 dollars…

  13. How is it a double standard?? All Jackson could do is complain, just like people are doing on here. Jackson school wouldn’t be able to stop Westlake from having an all night fundraiser for a charity. The people living in Westlake knew there was a public high school there when they moved in, what in the world do you expect??

    Obviously you have not been in Lakewood a very long time. The first 100 residents of Westgate would be more than happy to describe how they watched the entire construction of that school, after they had already moved in.

  15. Why not do a day event? And why in a school that is right next door to a huge residential area. Find a school in a non residential area and do it there.

  16. The plans for the high school were on the maps way before wesgate was even thought of. So watching the school go up means ziltch. Maybe we should notify all of lakewood before every purim so they should be ready for non stop noise and drunkeness. Fair is fair

  17. #21 We all know that many schools are in residential areas. I have one in my neighborhood and yes I wish it wasn’t there but I’m stuck with it. PS I lived in my neighborhood 40 years before the school opened.

  18. WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY AND JACKSON BOE FOR GOING OUT OF THERE WAY TO MAKE SURE NOT USE THE PA SYSTEM DURING THE NIGHT.IT WAS GREATLY APPRECIATED. WHAT AN AMAZING ORG.HOPEFULLY THE EVENT WAS SUCCESSFUL.IT IS AN UNBELIEVABLE CAUSE,

    A WELL SLEPT WESTGATE RESIDENT
