SITE Education Drive Is A Great Success

Thank you to all of our SITE friends who participated in SITE’s third annual Back-to-School Education Drive, which raised over $20,000 and exceeded its goal. We celebrated our success at a special reception at VERVE Gallery on Sept 30, where Andy Wallerstein, SITE Board Chair introduced Joanne Lefrak, Director of Education and Outreach. SITE is very proud that Joanne will receive the 2014 Mayor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts, and she reported on the activities of SITE’s Education Department, made possible through the resources of last year’s Education Drive!

We are deeply grateful to VERVE Gallery, Jenna and Wilson Scanlan, John Scanlan, and the William & Salome Scanlan Foundation for their support of SITE’s Education Department.
