Party for Summit Raises More than $200,000

The event, which raised more than $200,000 in gross revenue for Summit Foundation, showcased Summit’s mission and core values by honoring three outstanding and dedicated supporters with our 2018 Hope Award: Tops Friendly Markets, The Peter & Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation and The Rosenecker Family.

With more than 450 attendees, the evening was filled with energy and generosity, with guests bidding on 120 silent auction items. Kevin Sylvester, auctioneer for the night, engaged the crowd in live auction lots and “fund-an-item.” The guests’ generosity raised thousands in donations towards building a new classroom to serve additional students at Summit!

The party continued as attendees danced the rest of the night away with DJ Dave from Sound Express Entertainment leading the crowd on the LED dance floor.

The event was chaired by Carla Todaro Pantano who led a dedicated and hard-working committee: Samantha Bailey – Sharon Bakshi – Marybeth Basil – Missy Cornish – Tony DeSimone – Bryan Hartmayer – Linda Iantorno – Nicolle LoTempio – Sue Militello – Hillary Rifkin – Nicolas P. Saikali, M.D. – Russell Salvatore, Jr. – Liz Seefeldt – Michele Smith – Pam Smith – Joey Todaro
