Our Doors are Open
Michelle Silverman, Executive Director

I have to be totally honest with you: I've been pinching myself a lot lately. Why? Because I sometimes think I must be dreaming. And I know I'm not the only one.


After years of hard work by our entire community--donors, volunteers, board and staff:

  • We've reached our capital campaign goal of $3.8 million.
  • Our clubhouse is real--all 7,300 square feet of it.
  • Our red door is open and people who need Gilda's Club are walking through it each day.

No "Polar Vortex" Wussies Here 
Late January when everyone was hunkering down at home, many brave Kitchen Shower GCTC friends and volunteers got cozy at the clubhouse for
Gilda's Kitchen Shower and Open House.

 It was an over the top success thanks to the efforts of Julie Geiselhart and her team of volunteers. And thank you to our all of our foodie friends and supporters who helped to FULLY outfit our beautiful kitchen.
