"I am really excited about the gala! I've never attended so I don't really know what to expect, but I see how much time, effort and talent is being funneled into this amazing endeavor." Evan said while typing the newsletter you're currently reading.

Evan Hahn comes to BronxWorks with a background in video production and grassroots development.

Evan caught the development bug 5 years ago while volunteering in South Africa with the United States Peace Corps.

I'm so happy to finally find a home here on the BronxWorks Development Team."

Having volunteered as a tutor for Literacy Partners and the Doe Fund, she is especially interested in adult education. She is also a certified ESOL instructor. Bessie expecially enjoys writing donor and communication materials. "In les than two months, I've had a chance to draft sponsorship proposals, press releases, and Letters of Inquiry. "I'm excited to have such a dynamic role at such an effective organization."
