PRESENTATION OF A PROCLAMATION TO MS. BUNCHY GERTNER
Sally A. Heyman, Prime Sponsor
Board of County Commissioners
Commissioner Heyman presented a proclamation to Ms. Bunch Gertner in honor of her exemplary commitment and efforts advocating for underprivileged children. She noted Ms. Gertner has championed Toy Drives for the past 16 years; collected thousands of toys and gifts from a broad network she organized; and brightened the hearts of many children in this community. She also noted Ms. Gertner collaborated with Voices for Children Foundation, the fundraising arm for the County’s foster care program, to ensure every child in foster care received a gift, especially teenagers aging out of this system and excluded from toy drives and other holiday events aimed at younger children.
Ms. Gertner expressed appreciation to Commissioner Heyman for her kind words and this presentation. She also thanked her friends in the audience who were present in her honor. She noted toy drives were a huge endeavor that involved countless of hours and volunteers (toy drive elves) who never said “No” when approached from year to year for their assistance. She said she was eternally grateful for their commitment.
