WOW - What a Night - A few directors, family members, and Nourish Your Neighbor (NYN) Food Drive partners shared a table, a little bubbly, a wonderful meal and delectable chocolate desserts at the 2nd Annual Red Hook Community Center (RHCC) Gala Fundraiser this weekend. Our intern Nick Fiorellini, ambassador Emma Donahue, directors Brittany Mosher, Ali Fraenkel, and Nick Ascienzo were joined by NYN collaborators Sarah deVeer and Erin Cannan from Bard's Center for Civic Engagement (CCE), and Darryl and Debby Mosher, who are assisting in food resourcing for NYN. Among the more than 140 people gathered, our team of party-goers enjoyed the sound provided by Paul Rivers Bailey and The Forefathers and the cuisine prepared by Savona's under the direction of Ali's dad, Chef Tony!
Sara Ugolini, the Executive Director of the RHCC, and her board members hosted the fundraising celebration, complete with raffle packages (Brittany won one!) and donation opportunities to financially assist the RHCC’s needs. We have been a proud partner of the RHCC for the last two years - it has shown to be a vibrant hub of Red Hook activity, and many Gala guests spoke to the continued commitment to programming for folks of all ages. Our Red Hook community was in full view during the festive evening!
