Thank you to all who came out and made a difference in the lives of the children while having a great time doing it.
It takes a lot to keep a school of 160 students that also provides meals for the children and their families running. While the task can seem daunting, it is a lot easier when we throw fun into the mix. We did just that, last month, when we hosted our 6th annual Poker/Casino Night fundraiser in New York City!
The night was filled with excitement and competition and six lucky winners took home amazing prize packages donated by so many generous companies.
The top three blackjack and poker players took home prize packages valued over $1,000 each and the final tables all received premium wine from NY Vintners and Tommy Vanik as well has haircuts from Cutting Edge Fred and massages from Physical Advantage Massage Therapy and Georgette Williams.
Our lucky raffle winner received a Proenza Schouler hand bag valued at over $1,600!
We were fortunate to have NYC Fair Trade Coalition Blogger, Amber Harkonen, in attendance. See what she had to say.
