Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for everything in our lives. Every Thanksgiving, I think about how fortunate I am so have amazing friends and family. Since I was 7 years old, my friends at Perlman have truly become my family and I have been thankful for these people and the experiences we shared together. What better time than Thanksgiving to reunite with these people?

152 miles away from Lake Como PA, Perlman alumni gathered from near and far at Reunion Surf Bar. We went to the reunion at Reunion Surf Bar to reminisce, reunite, and raise over $1,000 to help children have the same experiences we were all so fortunate to have. As the night sadly came to a close, we excitedly anticipated the winners of the raffles. Big raffle items included a trip to California, VIP package to alumni weekend, camp swag, and gift certificates. Get ready to see Eric Feldman, Corey Spevack, and Matt Gibson in summer 2017!

With the craziness of work and school, I love having an opportunity to take a step back and remember the happiest times of our lives. Every year as the chill of winter comes, we can all look forward to this night we get to spend with our Perlman family – I know I do!

I cannot wait to see everybody again at Alumni Weekend 2017. Thank you for a great Thanksgiving Reunion!
