A Small But Mighty Committee Made It Happen
To the Editor,
We are pleased to share that the first annual ‘An Evening at Prescott’ fundraiser was an unqualified success!
Frank Santorelli, a comedian best known for his work on The Sopranos entertained us during two separate sets, as did talented musician John Niemoller of JDWest who not only volunteered his time but provided the sound for the evening.
With any event of this size, there are multiple businesses and people to thank.
To begin we’d like to acknowledge our generous event sponsor, Workers' Credit Union who jumped on board as soon as they heard what we were trying to achieve.
An Italian dinner for 140 was catered by Bianco's of Tyngsboro. Out of this world desserts were graciously donated by Raffaela Gutterman of Dolce Amar. The beautiful centerpieces were provided courtesy of Lisa Bohne of Lavender and Boston Road Liquors was instrumental in helping with our wine and beer selections for tonight. We are grateful to our community-minded sponsors and partners for helping to make the evening such a success.
Thank you also to Joni Parker-Roach of NOA Gallery for creating stunning murals of the Italian countryside and Venice in two of our classrooms.
We had a small but mighty committee who made our vison a reality. We are grateful for the tireless efforts of Carol Canner, Ginny Koslow-DiMola, Jackie Maguire, Leslie Sheldon, MaryBeth McKinnon and Sue Lotz. These lovely people have stayed the course, with equanimity, grace and good humor. They are the people you would want to keep on the island with you.
We would also like to thank Christine Gross and Brad Taylor, the two staff members at the Prescott School Community Center, who were instrumental in paying attention to countless details, along with the Friends of Prescott board, Bruce Easom, Bill Katter and Lynn Spadone.
Thank you to all the additional volunteers who, on the day of the event, helped to keep the wheels turning perfectly.
Lastly, our sincerest appreciation and gratitude to all who attended. Your good spirits, laughter and support of The Prescott School Community Center lit up the room.
It was a night to remember and we hope to see you back in the building soon!
