Annual Fund Wraps-Up for 2016-17

On June 15, we had our 2016/17 Annual Fund wrap up celebration. Originally scheduled to be held in the Wenying Garden, the weather had other plans for us and we ended up celebrating in the Qin Boardroom here at YHS.

The night kicked off with appies and prosecco and a chance for all of our volunteers to catch up after such a busy term. Jennifer Galli welcomed guests and, with the help of some of our Board Members, Annual Fund volunteers and staff announced our Annual Fund total this year of $1,050,424 — $50,000 over our first $1,000,000 goal!

Head of School, Chantal Gionet, spoke about the important role that Annual Fund plays in the experiences of the girls and thanked all of our volunteers for putting in such a great effort this year.

After an evening of wine, food, and celebration, guests received a potted succulent to celebrate their hard work in “helping our school grow”.
