CASA-NYC Fall Gala Fundraiser
October 2, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$100
An evening fundraiser benefit for CASA-NYC, a unique, volunteer-based child advocacy
organization dedicated to improving the lives of abused and neglected children in New York City foster care. Our highly trained volunteer advocates work exclusively on behalf of these children, ensuring that they do not spend needless time in foster care, and that they are returned to rehabilitated and loving parents, freed for adoption or prepared to leave foster care and live successfully on their own.
This annual fundraiser boasts a guest list of over 250 young professionals from New York’s legal, financial, entertainment and tech industries, and raises over $50,000 each year to help CASA continue to provide essential services to children and youth in the NYC foster care system.
All food, drinks, and desserts are donated by our fabulous local sponsors! Sponsors this year include Stolichnaya, Woodford Reserve, The Blackstone Foundation, Dorsey & Whitney LLP, Pfizer, Wing Lake Capital, and more!
Keynote Speaker Carl Hancock Rux, a native son of New York, and award-winning poet, playwright, novelist, essayist and recording artist.
