THANK YOU 2020 GAHANNA GALA SUPPORTERS!
A huge THANK YOU to the supporters of Gahanna students!
(Spring, 2020) We hope that this message finds you and your loved ones in good health during this unprecedented time. The Gahanna Gala feels like a lifetime ago.... we were truly lucky that we actually held the event just before the major shutdowns.
Because of fantastic community support, GJEF was able to raise over $120,000 at the Gala to support Gahanna students. Funds will be awarded in grants to teachers within the Gahanna school district as well as enhance the high school robotics program.
Not only did the students win, but we had a few raffle winners as well: $1000 Cash Raffle - Barbara & Severino Masolo, Lucky Key Raffle - Karen Arbuckle, and $100 - Gordon Kaylor.
DID YOU KNOW that past GJEF grants allowed teachers to experiment with Chromebooks and Google classroom? Their interest led the Gahanna school district to adopt a one-to-one technology plan 2 years ago, which made it easier for staff and students to pivot toward distance-learning. Who would have known that these devices would become the learning lifeline for our students during this difficult time?
Thank you for partnering with us to fulfill the mission of creating innovative opportunites for Gahanna's students! This wonderful celebration would not happen without the support of generous businesses, individual donors, Gala guests, staff members and awesome volunteers!
