The three co-presidents are Cristina Paolazzi, Kerry Pearson and Jamie Rose. Together, they have been working with OPUS for over 12 years, spearheading major fundraising events like this year’s “Summer Soirée,” securing tens of thousands of dollars of donations from corporate sponsors, and engaging current and alumnae members in critical initiatives that fund the programs at Person-to-Person.

“We are thrilled to be working with such an incredible group of women this year, all of whom are experts in what they do and who are committed to making a real difference in our community. It’s unthinkable that children within miles of us don’t know where their next meal will come from. We all want to work together to fix that,” shared Jamie Rose, OPUS co-president.
