In January beloved former Menlo School teacher Steve Gill, his daughter Anne and a team of talented current and former Menlo School students and faculty, treated audiences to two evenings’ worth of songs by the great American songwriter Harold Arlen, co-composer of many memorable songs such as Blues in the Night, Get Happy, That Old Black Magic and It’s Only a Paper Moon. This year the “Annie and Her Friends” concerts raised more than $7,000 for Special Needs sessions at Enchanted Hills Camp.
The Gill Family connection to Enchanted Hills Camp goes back to the late 1990’s when Anne, who was just out of high school, was in a near-fatal car accident that left her blind and brain injured. After a long rehabilitation period, the Gills learned about the Enchanted Hills session for blind adults who also have other disabilities and Anne began attending. Soon after they began to fundraise for the Enchanted Hills session and with this year’s concert have brought in nearly $95,000.
We offer our profound gratitude to Steve and Nancy Gill, Anne and all of “Annie’s Friends” for the great shows they put on to support us.
It’s easy to donate to Enchanted Hills Camp.
