SUCCESS! We had 102 attendees and raised $819 at our April 2 fundraiser at Bruegger’s Bagel’s, despite the very cold, rainy day which was a deterrent for many people to leave their cozy homes on a Saturday afternoon. Many thanks are in order . . . THANK YOU to:
- The diners – you, the JGMS and Bedford parent community for attending the MSPA fundraiser. We hope you loved the Jamba Juice and new menu items.
- Annie, Molly and Miss Hannigan for appearing at our fundraiser. It was a real treat to see them and hear them sing. What a terrific preview of the JGMS musical that begins this week. We hope it will be standing room only to watch the shows on April 7, 8, and 9!
- The Annie, Jr. parents Lariza Panagiotou and Emily Mitchell, plus MSPA board members Diane Bernstein, Kerry Rackey, Paula Gilarde, and Karen Guetersloh, all of whom were at the event to work. Our success is due to your efforts in putting in man hours at events like this. We appreciate you very much.
- Last, but not least, Bruegger’s Bagels and Jamba Juice for allowing us to host the fundraiser. You’ve got a great new store and wonderful staff.
THANK YOU, EVERYONE! ~ MSPA Board of Directors

Share the link with family members who are Amazon shoppers and they’ll end up helping us too! This program will continue past the holidays so please use the link indefinitely.
