Sponsoring the future: Julia B. Fee helps needy schools.
Honored at the dinner was Janet Wells, founding member and former president of the Chappaqua School Foundation. Ms. Wells has more than 26 years of leadership experience in government and education and is currently New Castle town supervisor. She was presented with a Waterford Crystal clock during the event.
The Chappaqua School Foundation is a community-supported not-for-profit corporation created to provide financial support for worthy projects and programs beyond the operating budget of the Chappaqua School District. The organization was founded in 1993 by Ms. Wells to help shield local schools from cutbacks in state aid to education. In the last 10 years, the Foundation has awarded over 50 grants to all six Chappaqua schools to fund innovative programs, enriching equipment and important educational experiences for children from kindergarten through 12th grade.
Julia B. Fee Real Estate was one of three lead underwriters for the event. Other financial support for the event was provided by Hudson United Bank and Wachovia Bank. Over 225 people attended the dinner, where they enjoyed musical entertainment and participated in live and silent auctions to raise funds for the foundation.
"Julia B. Fee has always taken community participation very seriously and we feel it's important to give back to the community we serve," said Randall J. Katchis, principal of Julia B. Fee Real Estate.
"It's essential to support community members who volunteer their time for the betterment of all who live in Chappaqua."
