Class Of 1969

 



Dear fellow members of the 228,

Wow! What a great Reunion! If you attended, thanks for coming. If you were unable to attend, we missed you! 

REUNION OVERVIEW

it was a great Reunion weekend with record-setting attendance. At our Saturday evening gala at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia, we celebrated with over 175 classmates and 35 guests. The evening kicked-off with a spectacular cocktail hour on the 33rdfloor during which the Central Jazz Ensemble played. This was followed by a sumptuous dinner in the main ballroom and a full program highlighted by speeches from classmates Joel Polis of Cheers and movie fame and Jim Bagian our own 228 real-life astronaut as well as from Steve Kaplan describing why Central is so special to him and Jay Horrow about the amazing achievement 228 has already accomplished through our gift fund.

 Some 15-20 classmates attended a pre-Reunion get together at Fado’s Irish Pub on Thursday evening. On Friday we had 60 classmates at school to audit classes and go on tours. Over 100 classmates and guests attended the cocktail party at the Hard Rock Café on Friday night.

THE 228 CLASS GIFT FUND - GIVING TUESDAY

The 228 Class Gift Fund has already made a real difference in the lives of Central students. 

Thanks to the outstanding leadership of Jay Horrow, Chairman, and Roy Goldman, Secretary, of the 228 Class Gift Fund, we are closing in (in pledges) on achieving our goal of raising $228k for school. At the time of the Reunion we were only some $22k away from this goal. We have already donated over $100k to Central in the form of ad hoc projects like air conditioning 70 classrooms, providing professional performances of Shakespeare twice, purchasing a state-of-the-art video camera and drone.

From the start our goal has been twofold: (1) to raise $228k AND (2) to have a very high rate of class participation fitting the enduring spirit of the 228. 

If you have participated in the GF, THANK YOU! If you have not yet joined in, please consider doing so at any level. ALL DONATIONS ARE WELCOME.

PLEASE NOTE THAT A DONATION TO THE 228 CGF IS THE SAME AS ONE TO THE AACHS, AS  THE VAST MAJORITY OF OUR FUNDS AT THIS TIME ARE GOING TO SUPPORT BUILDING THE NEW $40M PERFORMING ARTS CENTER .

Here’s how to donate: 

If you wish to donate by check, make payable to The Philadelphia Foundation and indicate "228 Class Gift Fund" in the memo line. This is important!
