The LightHouse team is gearing up for the CEO Welcome Reception to honor our new Chief Executive Officer, Sharon Giovinazzo. Join LightHouse staff, students, and Bay Area community members, alongside special guests, LightHouse Board Chair, Sharon Sacks, and former LightHouse CEO, Anita Aaron, as we formally celebrate new leadership as we enter the new year and a new chapter in LightHouse history.
“I am honored to join the leadership team at LightHouse as its new CEO,” said Sharon Giovinazzo. “This organization has a long and successful track record of driving and achieving independence, equality and self-reliance for the community.”
The welcome reception will begin at 4:00 pm on Friday, January 27. As our guests arrive, they will be greeted with a complementary beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverage refreshment bar and all their favorite charcuterie snacks. They will enjoy their refreshments as they mingle with fellow attendees and peruse the LightHouse Programs, Enchanted Hills Camp and Adaptations tables, where staff will offer the latest information and answer any questions about our services people may have.
Formal introductions and kind words of welcome will be shared by Sharon Sacks, Anita Aaron, and Sharon G. around 4:45, followed by more mingling and conversations as CEO Sharon and four-legged CEO (Canine Executive Officer) Pilot make their rounds throughout the party. All LightHouse students, staff, and supporters are invited to attend. If you have not yet done so, we encourage our guests to formally RSVP to the CEO Welcome Reception. We can’t wait to see you all next Friday!
