Executive Board

George Baldassano
George Baldassano - Co-President
My name is George Baldassano, I am currently a senior at Barrington High School, and I am Co-President of Go Beyond Barrington. I have been a part of Go Beyond Barrington since I was a freshman, and I joined because I saw how much fun the events were along with the group of students in the organization. My passion for GBB really accelerated last year after I got the opportunity to help homeless veterans, a cause very close to my heart. Raising $21,000 for them really opened my eyes to see how a group of hardworking and passionate students can make a huge difference. I am really looking forward to working with a great group of students and hosting more successful fundraisers such as our annual t-shirt sales.

Throughout this upcoming year, I am most excited to take part in the organization of fundraising activities such as the Go Beyond Barrington Games and the Snapenger Hunt. I have participated in the GBB fundraisers in the past and admire the club's ability to bring together the student body in fun competitions while raising money for people less fortunate than us. I am proud to be a member of Go Beyond Barrington because we are able to raise money for worthy causes, while increasing student participation and doing it all in a creative and fun fashion.

Hi! My name is Elizabeth Deneff, and I am going to be a senior this year. This is going to be my second year on the GBB board. I was on the GBB board last year, and I loved it. My favorite part of Go Beyond Barrington was the events. We came together as a club to host school-wide events in order to raise money for our chosen charity, and it was such an amazing experience to be able to see the effect. I am in Go Beyond Barrington because I love making a difference in people’s lives, and I am so excited to be able to help. I am most excited for our fundraisers, connecting with our charity (or strengthening our relationship with our current one), and coming together as a board.

My name is Anish Raju, and I am a sophmore at Barrington High School. My favorite part of GBB is the loving, family environment of the club. As soon as you join, you are welcomed by people who have a passion to help those who are less fortunate, just like you. I want to extend our organization's reach much further, so we can donate to multiple beneficiares a year. I aspire to do this by getting more people to join the great GBB family.

I joined this group for a multitude of reasons, with the primary one being the great things it does for people less fortunate than us. Another aspect of Go Beyond Barrington that I enjoy is the sense of unity that the members have, and how we truly work as a team to accomplish our goal.

Hello, my name is Erika Jarosch and I am a senior on the Go Beyond Barrington board.  I was first introduced to Go Beyond Barrington during my sophomore year, when I participated through the school club at a plethora of volunteer fundraisers.  I decided to join the board my junior year, and I am so proud of what we have been able to accomplish. My favorite part of being apart of GBB is how we are able to join hundreds of students together at different events we host throughout the year, from car washes, to “the games”, to more simple events like storefronts.  This year I look forward to expanding our presence in different communities, and exceeding our financial goals!
