We're pleased to announce that Our Family Table - a joint gala event benefiting our organization and our partners The Door and Broome Street Academy - was a rousing success.
With delectable comfort food, performers from our organizations, delightful desserts and the lively music of MC Records' Dayna Kurtz, it was a fun-filled evening we'll never forget.
At the event, we accepted live pledges for donations and more than met our goal. We received pledges for more than $100,000 from our guests!
