Highlights from 2013

On April 17, 2013, more than 500 supporters gathered at Jumpstart’s Scribbles to Novels New York at Cipriani Wall Street. Guests looked on as Jumpstart supporters Tina Fey, actress and author of Bossypants, and Cindi Leive, Editor-in-Chief of Glamour, interviewed Jumpstart alumni, Gillian Sharkey and Tovah Gottesman, and Jumpstart founder, David Carmel. In addition to the panel, television personality Stephen Colbert and Mayor of the City of Newark, Cory Booker (also an event attendee), were featured in special video presentations. Thanks to all of our sponsors, the evening was a success and we raised more than $1.4 million in support of Jumpstart programming in the Tri-State Area.
