team wendy

The River Bluff community came together tonight to support a great school and a beloved teacher. Micah, Jadon, and CB were present to personally thank so many for the love and generosity that has been bestowed upon Wendy and the Beckett and Manzo families.

An extra special thank you to the amazing and selfless River Bluff parents for planning, donating, and running such a successful event tonight. Thank you to Julie Jobinger, Charlene Cowin, Karen Goldsberry, Lisa Renwick, Suzanne Lanfranco and countless others who donated their time, money, and love to making the spaghetti dinner and bake sale a huge success. Thank you also to the River Bluff staff and students for helping the night go off without a hitch. A very special thank you to the Otis Spunkmeyer Company that donated and baked 500 cookies.

Local graphic design and custom screen printing company, HardDriven designed the "Team Wendy" t-shirts. HardDriven is donating all money raised from the t-shirt sales to Wendy. T-shirt orders can be placed at the River Bluff office until 3:00 pm tomorrow (11/20). For additional information about the "Team Wendy" t-shirt sales please email Julie Jobinger at

Donations of all kinds, monetary or service based, are still welcome at any time. All monetary donations can be made through the "lend a hand" link on this blog. Any other donations please contact Erin at

Newscaster Kopi from Great Day made an appearance at tonight's spaghetti dinner and bake sale. He will run a segment that includes information about Wendy and her incredible journey on December 1st.
