Dear Gipa Supporters!

Many heartfelt thanks to all of you who celebrated and supported this year’s GIPA Gala!

This year’s 30th anniversary celebration provokes a thought in me – imagine our children turning 30! I know it’s far off, but we certainly hope that you – and your children – will then gladly look back at the education they received during their studies here at Sunset, Henry S. West Lab Elementary, G.W. Carver Middle, and Coral Reef Senior High School! I think we can all be proud of what GIPA has achieved over the years: From its humble beginnings as a Saturday school to the full-fledged program we enjoy today with the many meaningful and often fun filled activities we can provide to our students, educators and parents.

This year’s Gala was sparkling with champagne, good mood and joyful scenes! Take a look at the pictures of the many happy friends, festively dressed up couples and you don’t want to miss the goofy ones from the Photo booth either!

The photo booth was generously sponsored by our board member Diana Moll!

Thanks to everyone who helped making this event successful: From the tireless room-moms to the silent auction donors, from the decor team, to Chef Tano and the high School studens’ helping hands!

I look forward to celebrating many more happy occasions with you – if not before, then at next year’s Gala event!

Best wishes,

Steffi Kordy
GIPA Gala Chair.
