As anyone who has tried to raise funds for worthy causes knows, putting together EDESIA 2021 - Hooray for Hollywood has been a major undertaking.   I would like to thank all who have pitched in time, physical effort, moral and monetary support. We could not host this event without you!

There are a a few individuals who deserve special recognition:
  • Our Sponsors and Vendors for consistently donating cash, products, services;
  • Our long suffering, loyal Edesia Committee members who help with planning;
  • Our WCI staff who cheerfully and expertly implement those plans;
  • Martha Graf and Kristy Schmidt for coordinating with MarillacHealth;
  • Arn McConnell, Dan McClintock, Susan Rhyne, Jade Alexander, Ashleigh Gore for lending their creative professional support;
  • Chefs Smith and Deremer for executing our historic luncheon menu, and  consultants Pat Kennedy and Jenne Baldwin-Eaton for pairing outstanding local wines;
  • Frank Dietz and Trish Geiger for screening their film, as well as Victoria Riskin and Alexis Iacono for joining them on the King Kong panel;
  • Greg Tally, for his considerable creative inspiration and collaboration.
All of you who continue to support Edesia, year in and year out.
We are abundantly grateful to you all.
Jean Tally
