FORDHAM MANOR -

A club at an all-girls Catholic school in Fordham Manor has raised enough funds to take the entire school to see “Captain Marvel.”

The marketing club at the Academy of Mount Saint Ursula set up a GoFundMe page, and reached out to alumni and school supporters, as well as held meetings in school, to help spread the word.

The club, which is only a year old, exceeded its goal and raised almost $11,000. It even got a surprise $2,000 donation from actress Eva Longoria.

The entire school and staff of the Academy of Mount Saint Ursula will go to Yonkers on March 27 to see “Captain Marvel.”  Tickets, transportation and lunch are all paid for.
