From the Associates Council: Down the Yellow Brick Road

Like “The Odyssey” and “The Lord of the Rings,” “The Wizard of Oz” is a story about a quest. At the end of the yellow brick road lies the Emerald City, and all Dorothy and her friends have to do is get there.

Easier said than done.

This spring, the members of the Associates Council are working our way to our very own Emerald City--the name we’ve chosen for our annual spring fundraising event on May 8 at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center. And it’s no small task! The 15 enthusiastic AC members who make up the event committee have committed to months of preparations for one serious cocktail party, which we’re counting on to deliver much-need funds for this year’s AC beneficiary, Go!Healthy.

Here on the AC blog we’ll be documenting the highlights of the planning committee’s journey toward our goal. Stay tuned for more information about how we picked the theme, the special guests we’ve invited, the generous companies who are sponsoring us, and profiles of our outstanding members.

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Here we go.
