Thank you very much to the wonderful staff and alumni of Art and Design High School and SIA for making this year’s Annual Toy Drive such a success. We were honored to have Ms. Gail Allouf and last year’s recipient, Brielle Nix, present the Minna Gordon Debel Memorial Award to Gustavo Aravjo. The Minna Gordon Debel award is in honor of Gail Allouf’s fiercely supportive and inspiring mother. Special thanks to Sally Lee, Yvonne Fitzner, Joel Gomez, and Vilma Alvarez for heading this special event and to our alumni Judy Wong, Juan Rodriguez, Margarette Ramsey, Vilma Alvarez, and our sponsors for their kind donations. We would also like to thank Burger Heaven for providing us with the space to hold our event. Happy holidays to all and we wish all of our A&D students and alumni much continued success.
Annual Holiday Party and Toy Drive Event on December 17th. And although the weather outside may have been frightful, it didn’t deter our intrepid alumni from participating in the wonderful event. We had a great turnout with some great raffle prizes, donated by several alumni. Additionally, a sophomore student, Gustavo Aravjo, was selected to receive the Minna Gordon Debel Memorial Award. We raised over $1,200 and our story was published in Our Town Newspaper . Click Here: See Event photos
