Cocktails for CPF 2015
On November 4, 2015, the Cerebral Palsy Foundation’s Young Professional Committee hosted its 3rd annual fundraiser, Cocktails For CPF, at American Whiskey, a rustic bar in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. With over 250 guests in attendance, the Young Professionals Committee achieved its ongoing mission of raising Cerebral Palsy (CP) awareness. The Committee discussed some of the great projects CPF is working on to improve the lives of people with CP and related disabilities.
Cocktails for CPF was a huge success – the Young Professionals Committee raised over $25,000 for CPF through ticket sales, silent auction sales, corporate sponsorships and other donations! The Committee is grateful to have received support and sponsorship from many generous organizations including: Center Sheet Metal Inc., Exclusive Realty Corp., PwC, Landing Point Search Group, Delphi Plumbing, Industrial Threaded Products Corp, Ganci Insurance, ASAP Sales, VJ’s Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning, Eagle One Roofing, Green Art Kitchen and Bath, NY Plumbing Supply, Maximum Environmental, and Dellon Sales Company.
Over 60 retailers supported the event’s silent auction including: Dior, Equinox, Sprinkles cupcakes, Guerlain, Fresh, Thomas Pink, CH by Carolina Herrera, Ralph Lauren, Ted Baker, SoulCycle, Billabong, Helen Ficalora, Redken, David’s Tea, and Macari Vineyards. Domaines Paul Mas donated Cote Mas Limoux champagne for the crowd to enjoy. Also, SoundSurge Entertainment generously provided a DJ, photographer, and a photo-booth to Cocktails for CPF.
Dalila Castillo, Founder and Co-Chair said, “I am so proud of the event’s success and how far the Young Professionals Committee has come since we started in 2013. Everyone had a great time at Cocktails for CPF! Our guests enjoyed themselves, made networking connections and ultimately walked away knowing more about CP, the great work CPF is doing, the Foundation’s “Just Say Hi” campaign – and more about the Young Professionals Committee.”
The Committee is currently expanding its membership base, and seeks to add members who are interested in supporting the mission. Feel free to contact Dalila Castillo if you are interested in joining CPF’s Young Professionals Committee.
