Last Thursday the Associate's Council and their many guests traveled down the rabbit hole and up to the Manhattan Penthouse for "Wonderland", an unforgettable cocktail party in support of The Children’s Aid foster care program. Guests enjoyed stunning views of Manhattan, cocktails featuring Tito's Handmade Vodka, delicious food and a dessert bar featuring Baked by Melissa cupcakes and goodies from Robicelli's. Between conversation and mingling with friends new and old, attendees also had the opportunity to pose for incredible glamour shots by Jonsar Studios and happy moments were caught and captured by the talented Josh Haunschild of Josh Haunschild Photography. Other lucky attendees won incredible raffle prizes ranging from an all-expenses paid golf trip to some of the best golf courses in the country to coveted, hot-ticket Broadway shows to delicious culinary experiences. Needless to say, guests left Wonderland smiling like the cheshire cat.

We are excited to announce that the event raised nearly $45,000, in support of the CAS Foster Care program.  A new record for the Associate’s Council!  Proceeds will support critical programming and services for approximately 560 children and youth in foster care!  We couldn’t be happier!   


The Associate Council would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our donors and our financial sponsors: The Danzi Family, Edelman, UBS, Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management, and Jonathan Rose Companies. We have been humbled by your generosity and support. 

Finally, we would also like to recognize our guests and extend a warm thank you to everyone who bought a ticket, made a donation or attended the event. Your support means the world to us! We hope you left the Penthouse with many fond memories of Wonderland. We know we did! 

Until next year!
