From the Associates Council: Escape to Midnight in Paris
The Associates Council is thrilled to continue our literary themed events by bringing a bit of Parisian sparkle to the lower east side in just a couple short weeks. Following our recent Emerald City spring soiree, the Children’s Aid Society’s 17th Annual fall fundraiser pays homage to Midnight in Paris.
Our venue, Preserve24, evokes a bit of the exposed brick facades, cobblestone street feel and Jazz Age environment the movie whimsically brings to life. You can almost picture Hemingway and Fitzgerald lounging in a corner booth discussing their newest masterpiece while Zelda dances by the bar. And even better, this fantastic new venue represents a charitable cause of its own, the preservation of Greenland’s retreating glacial landscape.
We are also pleased to announce that Tito's Vodka has graciously offered to be our exclusive vodka sponsor for the evening.
We hope you can escape with us to Midnight in Paris for drinks, hors d’oeuvres and more on Wednesday, November 20 from 7-9pm in support of the incredibly important work The Children’s Aid Society is doing in our neediest NYC communities.
Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit The Children’s Aid Society Go!Healthy program, an initiative that follows children from early childhood through adolescence and beyond, educating them about wellness, nutrition and healthy cooking.
