Goodbye Ali!

It is with much sadness that we make this announcement!

Our amazing Site Assistant, Ali, will be leaving us at the end of the month. 🙁

After we wiped away our tears, we asked her to share with us (and you) some of the memories she’s made and her favorite things about being here at GiGi’s.

She shared the following…

I’ve been working at GiGi’s Playhouse since April of 2019 and it has been filled with so many wonderful memories. Below are some of my favorite moments and memories I’ve had while working at GiGi’s.




Some of my favorites are:

  • Seeing our friends when they visit the Playhouse
  • All the smiles and giggles during tutoring and programs
  • Getting to see so many of participants in the Playhouse when tutoring is in session (shoutout to my personal assistant, Mila 🙂 in the photo above)
  • Seeing everyone come together for the Superhero Race (I loved seeing all the costumes too!)
  • Meeting so many families during the Summer Picnic
  • Witnessing how selfless and amazing our volunteers are-you guys are the BEST!
  • Having an amazing team to work with, Pam is a rockstar boss and our board is too!
  • Connecting with all the other GiGi’s Playhouses at the National Conference
  • Participants achieving their Best of All


Every day and every week is different while working at GiGi’s Playhouse! It was so fun and always a surprise to see what the week would hold for us. I couldn’t be more thankful for this opportunity and GiGi’s will always have a special place in my heart. Plus, I never realized how much fun a job could be until I came here! I also wanted to give a special thanks to Pam for all that she has done for me and for being an amazing coworker and boss. Thank you for all the memories and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for GiGi’s Playhouse Quad Cities!

Ali will be greatly missed and we wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors. Safe travels and be sure to stop in to visit when you’re in the neighborhood. If you’d like to wish Ali farewell, please send her an email at Sadly, due to COVID we’re unable to hold a going-away celebration for her.
