Kids Pour Lemonade to Raise Awareness

The children of CR board members and staff pitched in to help raise awareness about the need to reform failing child welfare systems in the United States during CR’s first-ever lemonade stand event, held in October.

Olivia Galpern, Gavin Galluzzo, Mia Galpern and Isabel Santana helped out at the CR lemonade stand.

“Kids for kids! Support kids in foster care!” Mia Galpern, daughter of CR board member Daniel Galpern, chanted as other children handed out information on CR and poured lemonade for people at the Tribeca, New York City location of Flywheel Sports. The leading national chain of boutique indoor cycling studios was co-founded by CR board member Jay Galluzzo.

The event was hosted by Galluzzo, his wife Jenny and their children Gavin and Reid, as well as Daniel Galpern, his wife Cori and their children Mia and Olivia.

“It was great to see our children connect with such an important cause, and spend the afternoon raising awareness for Children’s Rights and foster kids across the country,” Jay Galluzzo said.

The lemonade was generously donated by Juice Press.
