Thank you to everyone who came out to our annual Benefit & Auction on May 14th—what a fantastic night! Special thanks to Daniel Roumain for an incredibly moving musical performance, and to artist Franco Mondini-Ruiz, who painted portraits of many of our guests. And of course, we are eternally grateful to our amazingly generous board member, Paige West, who hosted the event at her beautiful home in Tribeca. We’re already looking forward to next year’s festivities!
