To all of our in-person attendees, virtual participants, and contributors for your incredible generosity and support, thank you! The games and dance floor were hopping all night, much camp badge flair could be seen throughout the room, and a few marshmallows were roasted over the fire.
Big debt of gratitude to our wonderful event sponsors: Guatavo Bamberger and Martha Van Haitsma, Signature Bank, Joshua Schwartz, Sibyl Day and John Ring, Bertley Leonard and Shawn Rudder, BartlettChen LLC, Yasmin Curtis and Two Fish Crab Shack, and Kikwetu Coffee Co.
The event could not have been possible without the brilliance, dedication, and generosity of this year’s Gala Committee, led by our amazing co-chairs, Carla Kupe, Maria Luna-Duarte, and Tanarra Schneider. It is with much gratitude that we thank Leanne Bailey Asbury, Beatriz Beckford, Genesis Bencivenga, Leslie Browne, Sabine Charles, Anita Chavez-Berry, Emily Chen, Emily Cole-Kelly, Martha Itulya-Omollo, Stacy Koutsoubas, Natasha Mickey, Liesl Shurtliff, Laura Staley, and Zuri Thompson. And we can’t forget the numerous support and contributions from the faculty and staff – especially, the miracle man himself, Rodney Williams.
And last, but not least, thank you to our amazing auction donors whose generosity is immensely appreciated – with a special shout out to Gene’s Sausage Shop and Merz Apothecary.
