Wednesday night's Tuition Support Gala was a tremendous success. We were delighted to welcome Bob Muncaster - founder and member of the JICS Tuition Support Committee, Sara Jackman - valued friend and supporter of the lab school, OISE Dean, Dr. Glen Jones, alumni parents and lab school graduates, current families, and new friends of the lab school. The evening was filled with a vibrant energy deeply representative of our unique community, and strong spirit of giving. It was a night to remember! Your donations will make an immediate impact. We will be able to offer funding to more current and future families in financial need. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
The Lab School acknowledges our extraordinary Gala Planning Committee, who generously and tirelessly contributed their expertise, time, and creativity. Many thanks to Tracy Pryce, Jen Grant, Kate Strasburg, Jennifer Lambert, Beth Corcoran, Ramona Omidvar-Khullar, Mindy Budhdeo, Maryam Keyhani, Tracey Thomson, Nicole Jolly and Lesley-Anne Morris, and thank you to Awet Sium, Suresh Singh and Casey Dabiet for your advice and assistance.
