I cannot express enough gratitude to all of the generous supporters who donated and contributed their time and efforts towards making this year’s Gala such a success. I consider each and every donor a lifelong member of The Wellness Community family. I would like to particularly thank my good friends Honorary Chair Michael Capponi and Gala Chair Debra Schottenstein for their continued hard work, personal support and friendship.”
