Back to School Party Recap

20 Aug

On August 11th, Give and Get NYC hosted it’s second event to benefit a New York City non-profit. Homes for the Homeless was chosen for its child-centered, education-focused approach to all its programs and services. The turnout was great, with about 50 guests in attendance, and the donations were overwhelming. Literally- they took over half my office until the HfH Field team came to pick everything up the following Monday. The final tally came to 81 bookbags, 77 notebooks, over 150 pencils and pens, hundreds of crayons and markers, thousands of sheets of loose-leaf paper, and a lot of other back-to-school necessities.

Thanks to all who came out and congratulations to those who won show tickets to STOMP and La Cage Aux Folles. A special thank you to Wolfe Trahan & Co. for their generous donations.

If you took pictures at the event, feel free to send them to rachel@giveandgetnyc.com and they will be added to this site!

Stay tuned for updates about the next event, set for Fall 2010…
