Last year, guided by Class Agents Warren Thaler and Claudia Baldassano and Annual Fund Chairs Mark and Megan Nicoletti, the parents from the Class of 2018 achieved 100% participation in Baldwin’s Annual Fund.  To celebrate this accomplishment the girls were treated to a pizza party earlier this month. Sally Powell spoke about the importance of the Annual Fund and the significance of having the highest participation in the school. The girls had a great time and are looking forward to encouraging their parents to reach their goal again this year.
