Attend an Event
This special event will be held in memory of Marilyn Frank, beloved wife of David Feldman '76, mother of Sarah '06 and Michael '10, and dedicated advocate for advancing progressive political causes locally and nationally.
Held the week of Valentine's Day each year, Giving Day is a special opportunity for all members of our community to come together to celebrate our cherished GFS experiences. On February 12, we ask everyone to contribute to GFS through the Annual Fund, unlocking generous challenge gifts, and to connect with us on social media using #ShowYourLoveGFS.
Let's gather to sing, dance, and enjoy the musical talents of our community! We are excited to bring together GFSers of all ages for this joyful musical event.
Virtual plans are underway with special reunion activities planned for classes with years ending in '00, '01, '05, and '06. If you would like to get involved, please contact Brandon Jones '00, Director of Alumni Relations, at email@example.com.
Our largest celebration of the year—a virtual "evening-in" fundraiser to support scholarship at GFS! If you are interested in getting involved, please email Duane Michelle Sims, Special Events Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
