2014 Spring Benefit

thumbnail of the benefit invitation

On May 7, 2014, Advocates for Children of New York welcomed more than 650 guests to 360˚ in lower Manhattan to celebrate another phenomenal year for our organization.  Congratulations to our 2014 honorees, Eugene Ludwig and Al-Yasid Johnson! Special thanks are due to our record 63 Sponsors, as well as the many individuals who donated during the evening’s festivities to fund a much-needed new staff position for the AFC Helpline. 

As Executive Director Kim Sweet noted, “More than 520,000 New York City students live in poverty and are eligible for AFC’s education advocacy.  We are so grateful for our private donors’ ongoing and generous commitment, which will ensure we can provide thousands of struggling students and their families with expert legal representation, guidance and advocacy training in the coming year.”
