November 13th, marked the New Rochelle Fund for Educational Excellence Foundation Gala at the Fountainhead , New Rochelle. Unfortunately, I first arrived at 7:15, and only took a few photos and snippets of video, but I wanted to share with you all!

There were so many people present, a great silent raffle, and auction. A great time for all who joined the festivities! A very touching moment was when “Millie” Radonjic introduced a young student who had been battling (and overcome) cancer, and who had written and recited a wonderful poem. There was also a very proud moment for Greg and Lianne Merchant when their son, Marcel, was awarded the Eric Tutera Athlete’s award.
A GREAT night!
See you next year!
New Rochelle is GREAT!
