Thank you Einstein Community!

The Gala was a fun event and the money raised (approximately $60,000) will be used to keep Einstein that special school we have come to love and appreciate. Without the support of the whole community, we would not have been able to do this event and raise the money we need. From the sponsors, to the teachers and staff, to the parents who contributed to class baskets to those that came, we all made it happen because that’s how Einstein rolls!

Thank you to our wonderful Gala Crew who, once again, pulled off this complicated event beautifully. We would like to shout out a few members of the crew who have been with the committee since the very beginning: Jinna Albright, 10 plus years (“it’s all a blurr”), Bonnie McCarthy (6 years), Mamie Barrett (10 years), Sarah and Mark Lewis (9 years), and Roselle Ellison (7 years)!

Lissa Metzger, Jill Galante, Joel Linsky, Jennifer Coleman, Aili Kato, Stephen Moneypenny, Petra Ives, Jennifer Cardinale, Sue Ellen Di Filippi, Deborah Pawloski, Caroline Niles, Doriene Verhoeven, Wendy Teasdale, Karla Duarte, Christina Belpassi, Judith Sanchez, Jen DeMik, Angie Santini, Sara Mednick, Chrissie Nielsen, Bonnie Delgato, Peggy Junker, Robin Chiki, JoAnn Molter, Tanja Sawicki, Wendy Grentz, Arcelia Nebel, Jennifer Johnson, Kathi Blocher, Kai Schoettke, Toni Young-Pen, Oanh Nguyen, Diethard Merz, Libby Dominguez, Brad Baquial, Cathy Montes, David Sciarretta, Hildegard White, and Manuela Seidl.
