The Feldmans combined a trip to the University of Colorado to visit Brett with a meeting with students from the Volunteer Resource Center and this year’s scholarship recipients for the Alternative Spring Break program. While there, the Feldman’s were filmed by CU student, Kylie Bearse for a news story about the Foundation’s establishment of scholarships for the Alternative Spring Break program.

Casey’s parents, Dianne Anderson and Joel Feldman, combined a trip to CO during the weekend of February 5th to attend a board meeting of the CU Parents’ Association with a dinner to meet with students of the Volunteer Resource Center at CU. Casey’s Fordham University roommate, Kelsey Butler and Casey’s cousin, Jamie Gallagher, accompanied the Feldman’s and enjoyed the opportunity to meet with the CU students. The students were excited to discuss recent happenings in the volunteer office as well as plans for the upcoming alternative spring break trips.

A pleasant surprise was the appearance of CU student, Alex Mondics, whom the Feldman’s met for the first time. Coincidentally, Alex’s father, Chris Mondics, Staff Writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer, wrote the January 7th front page article on Joel Feldman, “Loss of daughter helps lawyer feel clients’ pain”.
