NEW YORK CITY (April 19, 2017) — Jumpstart hosted special guest Nigel Barker, Bridget Moynahan, and Padma Lakshmi at their annual Scribbles to Novels gala. During our program, Chris Stadler, our Board Chair, spoke of the importance of putting yourself in others’ shoes and working towards understanding how we are all responsible for one another, the way Jumpstart college student volunteers are responsible for delivering a quality program for our preschool students.
Those in the room, generously raised $190,000 over the course of the night. This is incredible and an enormous amount of funding to put towards preschool children and college student volunteers in the New York metro and Tri-State areas.
Thank you to our Local Advisory Board and Host Committee, and to our generous sponsors who made the evening possible!
