A day at the races! Foundation hosts Belmont Stakes in NYC
This year’s Belmont Stakes Reception and Auction was our most successful event to date! Hosted in NYC at the Hotel Edison, the event raised more than $200,000 for the D. Robert McCaffree Community Service Grant Program, which focuses on helping those who face health disparities. With 150 guests in attendance, the room was buzzing with excitement. Not only was the crowd overjoyed to be gathered together again after more than a year apart, the magnitude of celebrating in the nation’s hardest hit city was especially poignant.
