American Red Cross

Dear Nicky,

Thank you so much for your generous gift to our auction and raffle at our Fourteenth Annual Awards Gala on February 12, 2011.

The event was a great success on many levels. We gave well¬deserved recognition to our ten honorees for their volunteer and humanitarian efforts on behalf of our community: Kathleen & Sylvester McClearn, Elisabeth Ginsburg, Reginald Hollinger, Ann Jennings, Nicole McGrath, Denise Roman, Margot Sage-EL, Melissa Walker and Michael Winchester.

We received overwhelming support of more than 500 individuals and businesses. The funds we raised support the many essential services we provide to Montclair, Glen Ridge and Nutley. These include local disaster assistance, transportation, health and safety classes, shopping for shut-ins, blood drives, Nutley Food Pantry and service to military families.

Again, on behalf of our Board of Directors and Gala Committee, thank you very much for your support of the Red Cross. We hope you will continue to support us at next year’s event!

Sincerely Yours,

Ofira Bondorowsky, Gala Chair
