Hearts for Hope - 2010
Friday, Feb 13, 15 by
Incarnation’s second annual fundraiser, Hearts for Hope, couldn’t have been more of a success! The Prince George Ballroom was full of excited attendees who crowded the silent auction and raffle tables. Food by Lawrence Craig Caterers, lighting by Power Posse Productions and a generous donation of flowers and accents by Preston Bailey were the finishing touches on an elegant evening out. Guests were found perusing the gallery of black and white photo images of the children of Incarnation. The direct quotes from the children about what it’s like to live HIV -infected touched the hearts of many, as did the video presentation that re- minded us of the reason we were all there to begin with.
The first “Heart of Hope” award recipient, Bryan Robinson, was surrounded by friends, family and his biggest fans: the staff of Incarnation to celebrate the work he has done for the Center. Because of the generosity of event sponsors such as Heineken USA and TD Bank, we were able to make this year’s event better than ever and raised over $70K for the children of Incarnation! Funds will be used to refurnish the children’s common areas, send the kids to summer camp and on special trips like Coney Island and Rye Playland. Our heartfelt thanks to all that attended the event, our generous sponsors and donors, without whom we would not be able to do what we do for these children.
