Celebrate the Children Foundation
Hosted Their 2nd Annual Art & Gift Auction
Dear Friends and Supporters,
The Celebrate the Children Foundation extends its gratitude to all those who made its 2nd Annual Art & Gift Auction a success. The Art and Gift Auction took place on Thursday, December 6, 2012 at the Foundation for the Blind located in Denville, NJ and featured a light buffet sponsored by Cielo Restaurant & Bar. A cocktail reception was followed by a wonderful holiday gift and art auction.
The entire Foundation Board of Trustees members worked countless hours to ensure that this event would be successful. All of the volunteers, specifically Kristin Verdi, who worked on the program, the invites, and even bar tending; the volunteers who helped with parking, unloading and loading the art truck; our Information Technology Coordinator who helped with the audio; our recent graduate, Simon Alexander, who assisted with the coat check-in. Additionally, we are thankful to Mary Beth Scheerer, Celebrate the Children’s art teacher and Pam Donovan, Trustee, who energized the students to create artwork which was presented and sold at the auction. This was a huge success! We are also most grateful to all who attended the auction and to all who purchased items and contributed to the success of the auction. Lastly we are also grateful to the Foundation for the Blind for allowing us to host this event at their location.
We are pleased to announce that the Annual Art and Gift Auction raised over $12,500 for Celebrate the Children student with special needs.
To all of you … THANK YOU … THANK YOU … THANK YOU!
Dr. Anthony Novembre
