We kicked-off GivingTuesday a day early with our wonderful supporters. Hosted at Whitman and Bloom, our kick-off party for our 2017 Friendship Ball was a great success. In attendance were our Men of the Year, Andrew Breslin and Ray Baccala. We would like to thank everyone who made our night a fun filled one! We look forward to seeing you all again when we celebrate our 35th Annual Friendship Ball on Friday 24th February 2017 at the Pierre.

After moving to America on his 20th birthday, he landed his first job bar-tending in Tramps. His brothers, Michael and John, and sister, Maureen, soon joined him in the States. In 1986, he opened his first bar, Allison’s, on 8th Avenue beside FIT, with Alphie McCourt, brother of the Frank & Malachy. Sidet
