On Thursday, March 19th HMESF held a Casino Night fundraising event at 1315 Studios. Thank you to everyone who made the event such a success!
Casino Night guests enjoyed an evening of gambling, raffle prizes, and complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Raffle prizes included a wide variety of local services such as Box Butler storage and beauty services from CPW Vein & Aesthetic Center, gift cards from The Monarch Room and Home Depot, and big ticket prizes included a Flat Screen TV and a NOIZY Brand Wireless Speaker, among many more.
Money raised at the fundraiser will go towards HMESF's early childhood education initiatives in New York City, including the Terri Lynne Lokoff Teachers Award and library donations. Learn more about what HMESF does for early childhood education here.
Decor for the event was generously donated by early childhood education centers Sunshine, Bronxworks, and Safe Horizon.
