Teach For America's Fall Fling
Teach for America's Young Professionals Committee is hosting the 2010 Fall Fling to benefit TFA. It will take place at The Bowery Hotel (335 Bowery) on Thurs, Sept. 16th from 8pm-midnight. I hope to stop by on the late side and hope to see you there! Here's an email about it from Nicole Swartzentruber:
I'm also passionate about improving our country's education system by honoring our effective teachers and putting more of them in front of the students who need them most. In support of that goal, I sit on Teach for America's Young Professionals Committee. We host an annual benefit to raise money and awareness for TFA among 20 to 30-somethings who will hopefully become loyal supporters. Would you be willing to share the attached invitation with the young set at your firm or anyone else you think might be interested? We'd love for you to post it in your emails or blog as well, if you think it appropriate. I hope I'm not over-stepping any boundaries by sending this; I believe my colleagues have reached out to you in the past and I'm excited to share this event because it's a really fun night!
The benefit will be held at the Bowery Hotel on Thursday, September 16th from 8pm to midnight. Tickets are currently $75 (but will increase closer to the event) and will include a wonderful evening filled with good food, music, an open bar and, of course, support for a great cause.
