Meet Our Co-chairs
STARability Foundation is excited to announce Jennifer Marchionda and Holly Shapiro will be leading the 2022 STAR Gala as event co-chairs!
Shapiro and her husband, Marc, have two children. Their son, Nathan, 14, was diagnosed with autism and other rare medical issues at age 2. Nathan recently joined the Junior Trailblazer Academy, STARability's afterschool program. And Marchionda marvels at how her 15-year-old daughter Larissa, who is on the autism spectrum, also has engaged in the program.
Each year, the STAR Gala gets better and better because of the leadership and passion of our co-chairs and committee," said Karen Govern, STARability's CEO. "We know that the 2022 STAR Gala will be a resounding success with Holly and Jennifer at the helm. They both have personal connections to our mission and truly understand the importance of having transformative and engaging programs for individuals with disabilities."
Shapiro is the owner of Aries Title with husband and attorney Marc L. Shapiro, and Marchionda runs her own business, Jennifer Marchionda Design.
