We're thrilled to announce that Our Family Table - a joint gala event benefiting our organization and our partners The Door and Broome Street Academy - was a whopping success.
Together with our generous sponsors and guests, we raised $1 million to support our work with New Yorkers in need.
With delectable food, specialty cocktails from Michter's Distillery and Champagne Henriot, exceptional emcee Michelle Charlesworth (of WABC-TV), and performances and testimonials from our participants, it was an inspiring, lively evening we'll never forget.
More than 500 guests came together to celebrate our 2017 Changemaker Award honorees: JPMorgan Chase & Co., Brandon Stanton (creator of Humans of New York), and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr.
If you'd like to experience some of the magic, check out our photo album online. You can also view a special video explaining University Settlement's work that we debuted at the event.
We'd like to thank our sponsors for their support, including our Big Apple Sponsors: Allen & Company, Deborah & Louis Leone, Leah & Clayton Pope, and David Shapiro & Liz Lange.
We'd also like to thank our event committee, including our event chairs Marc DeBevoise, Clayton Pope, Benjamin Schall, and Monica de la Torre for making the evening such a smashing success.
Finally, we'd like to thank those who donated prior to the event and those who pledged money while present. Without all of you, the work of our family of organizations would not be possible.
We are still accepting donations to our family of organizations online. Please consider making a gift today.
