Opus for Person-to-Person, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary in January, has selected 22 women for its 2015-2016 Board of Directors.
With more than 200 women from Darien and surrounding towns, Opus is a charitable organization whose members volunteer for the Darien and Norwalk-based agency Person-to-Person. Since 1996, Opus has contributed nearly $3.3 million to Person-to-Person. Last year, Opus raised more than $248,000 that went directly to Person-to-Person’s programs and services.
“We are thrilled with the incoming board members, many of whom had significant roles in recent fundraisers,” said Kristina Gregory, co-president of Opus for Person-to-Person. “One of the goals we have set for this year is to engage even more local businesses in Darien, Norwalk, and Stamford in supporting the important work of Person-to-Person by supporting Opus for Person-to-Person. We will also partner with Person-to-Person more closely to address the specific and changing needs for donations and volunteers.”
The 2015-2016 Board of Directors includes:
Christa FitzPatrick — vice president
Jennifer Barbagallo — secretary
Gina Gromelski and Jennifer Sherman — treasurers

Opus supports Person-to-Person through fundraising and public awareness with three popular events: the BigGER Rig Gig in September, an annual spring gala and Balloons for Campers Day in May.
