Alex – Best of All

Alex participating in National Virtual Tutoring.


Alex participating in local virtual GiGi’s Playhouse Twin Cities programming, including Drama Troupe.

Alex is a friendly, outgoing, humorous, and a very positive child that is part of our GiGi’s Playhouse Twin Cities community, returning to the Twin Cities following their missionary experience in Philadelphia. When the family was in Detroit, Alex got to meet GiGi at the grand opening of GiGi’s Playhouse Detroit. It was a beautiful day and they all loved meeting GiGi, GiGi’s mom, Nancy Gianni (founder and CBO of GiGi’s INC), along with the rest of GiGi’s family. Alex first enthusiastically got involved with us here in the Twin Cities virtually in the fall of 2020, where he was part of our piloted local virtual literacy tutoring matched with the phenomenal tutor Dr. Julie. Since then, he has been involved with the national virtual literacy and math tutoring, plus our local programs including: Drama Troupe, Story Telling – PJ’s and Books, and Social Skills for School Age Learners. Every time Alex attends a GiGi’s program, he is always kind and interacts with everyone else while having a great sense of humor. In addition, Alex is consistently doing his very best – where he truly exemplifies #Bestofall!

We are honored to have Alex and his amazing family, including his parents, Patricia and David, siblings: Elena, Annie, Thomas, Jane, Ryan, Maryangela, Sean, John, Azelie, be part of our GiGi’s Playhouse Twin Cities community. Thank you all for taking full advantage of all the FREE, progressive, educational, and therapeutic programming opportunities available through GiGi’s this past year. We look forward to continuing to see your family in the future.
