Sharon was introduced to Friends of Karen in 1987 when her children participated in a swim-a-thon at Breezemont Day Camp. She has been a dedicated leader and volunteer, spearheading many special events, including the organization's Westchester gala and a special Friends of Karen tennis event at the Citibank Champions Tennis Tournament. Her father, Elmer, and children Kym, Jeff and Eric have all been volunteers and her children continue their involvement. Her husband, Jonas, has been actively involved too through his business Best Plumbing, Tile and Stone. Sharon has also served on all of the Somers (NY) PTAs for 13 years, where she formed a Somers PTA Council with all district schools. She volunteers weekly for HERO (Helping Expand Recreational Opportunities) where she hits tennis balls to physically and mentally challenged adults, and is on the Board of the Eastern Adult Tennis Foundation that raises money to give grants to grassroots tennis programs for adults. Sharon and Jonas reside in Pound Ridge, New York.
