From our 2018 Gala Chairs: Steve and Wendy Lee

Wendy and I are chairing this year’s gala so that other families can benefit from the Chelsea education our children have had. With four Chelsea alum (two college grads and two in college), two current Chelsea students, and one rising Chelsea 4th grader in 2019 we’re excited about what Chelsea’s second decade will bring!
