A finalist for the prestigious Tory Burch Foundation Fellows Program and winner of East Hanover Italian American Club’s 2017 Italian-American Woman of the Year, Ms. Spagnoletti was delighted to collaborate with the local students.

Ms. Spagnoletti said, “It was truly an honor to get to know these brilliant and beautiful girls from Morristown High. They inspire all of us at Lucy’s Gift to continue doing the good work we do every day to support others in need. I admire their enthusiasm, passion, and willingness to support the community in any way they can. They are the future and the future is bright!”
