Melanee Blankstein brings to Young Singers many years of marketing, managerial and training skills from working national and international retail chains. She began as a volunteer with the organization 9 years ago, before joining Young Singers full time. After the loss of her mother Mary Murray, she and her family wanted to honor her memory with a donation to assist families in need of financial assistance to participate in Young Singers. Every year in February the Mary Murray Family 5K Walk/Run supports the scholarship fund.
While raising her three boys she was a substitute teacher and has dedicated many hours to volunteering in local schools and the community. She has been a PTA President, SAC Chairperson, and has chaired numerous fundraising events for schools and community organizations. Mrs. Blankstein was honored by the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce with a “Doing Good In The Neighborhood” award. She is a past member of the Delray Beach Education Board and the Board of Governors at the Delray Beach Playhouse.
Ms. Blankstein is a graduate of Louisiana State University in Shreveport.
