 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.

This past June, we had another wonderful day of renewing old friendships, sharing lots of laughs and playing some good golf at our 2012 Golf Classic.
