A Night To Remember

First off, we would like to thank everyone that came out to the Gala and made it a great success.  We love to see everyone smiling and enjoying the night.  For that, we are truly blessed.

The “fund-a-need” portion of the 2015 Legacy Gala was spectacular.  The idea was to raise the funds for two new wheelchair vans so that all of our students could venture out for field trips, public outings, and other social trips.  To build a little bit of excitement for the “fund-a-need”, we teamed up with VA Productions to create a rather comical video based on the Wizard of Oz.  You can take a look at the comical video below.

The Halo Award

160_JPII-Gala_2015The 2015 Legacy Gala was a night to remember.  A group of 550 kind individuals joined us in celebrating the achievements of our students and the support that our local community has given us.  The night was highlighted by the presentation of the Halo Award, which honors a community member who embodies the spirit of our mission and who works to ensure our legacy into the future.

This year, we honored Dr. Vincent and Mrs. Mary Lou Parisi for their continued and tireless support of our students and school.  In recognition of this honor, they were presented with a JPII Halo Book, which was comprised of angel water paintings from each student in the school.
