The Catherine A. Klie Award was presented to BJ Gedney, who has been an avid supporter of SJPC since the Center’s opening in 2010. She has generously given her time, talent, and treasures to SJPC through the years… She is passionate about making a difference in the world of child abuse prevention. The award was presented to her by board member Mary Rather, with her entire family in attendance.
This year was special featuring a parenting panel spotlighting three SJPC parents, Bella Pacheco, Mitch Janoff, and Chris Rushing. Their passion for the programs that changed their lives echoed when questioned by moderator, Scott Ventrella. We were blessed to have Scott offer his services. He connects personal development with professional and spiritual growth as he pursues his passion for helping others reach their full potential.
Special thanks to Gerry Sweeney, our Chairman of the Board, Rhonda Neal, our Executive Director, and to Rain Carbon, hatattack, and drBank for sponsoring our breakfast event.
