SOUTH AMBOY — On October 2, the Dowdell Library Foundation of South Amboy raised hundreds of dollars in donations through a dunking booth at the South Amboy Street Fair to purchase an online software teaching center that will provide coaching for SAT, AP, GED, and citizenship tests as well as job search and workplace skills.

Dozens of people dunked well-known figures of South Amboy, including former Mayor John O’Leary and City Councilman Mickey Gross as well as South Amboy High School teacher and coach Tony Gonsalves.

The booth was made possible thanks to donations from State Assemblyman John Wisniewski and Dosils Scuba Shop of Middletown.

The Dowdell Library Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. For more information, visit www.DowdellFoundation.org or call 1-732-316-1078.
