This Fourth Annual cocktail party was held at 1 Oak NYC and hosted by two best friends , Danyelle & Ashley who each tragically lost a parent to cancer, one to Lung Cancer & one to Pancreatic Cancer, respectively.
I was was able to volunteer at check in and was so surprised when every donor who walked through the door was under 35 years old. This room of young just over 200 professionals raised more than $60,000 in one evening to benefit both The Lung Cancer Research Foundation & the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. Tickets cost $150 for a two hour open bar, with the third hour of the event a cash bar, a 50/50 raffle, silent auction run by Grandstand Sports & pick-a-prize raffle.
After two heart-warming & tear-filled speeches made by the two event hosts, 1 Oak provided delicious pass-around bites to a room of philanthropic twenty-somethings sipping cocktails for Cancer Research. Overall, the event was a beautiful success and I can’t wait to help out next year!
