This post comes from Allie Weiss, one of the program directors at LiveUp NYC!
On Saturday March 4th, we held our 2nd annual beer pong tournament fundraiser at Brother Jimmy’s in New York City. This event was held in order to raise money for scholarships. We had the support of over two hundred people including members of the LiveUp family as well as friends and family who wanted to support our organization! We received amazing donations of raffle prizes including a variety of workout classes, passes to Disney World, tickets to various comedy shows and many other great items! We raised over $6,000!
In attendance was Meghan Latini, who says her favorite part about LiveUp is meeting new people and making new friends. Cristin Durkin said “It was great seeing everybody I know from LiveUp at the fundraiser” and that she loves LiveUp because all of the fun activities she gets to do over the weekend. Katie Moore said “I really liked going to the fundraiser” and her favorite things about LiveUp programs are the dance and going to the water park.
Sara Norelli attended and says, “LiveUp is such a wonderful program because it brings people of all ages and backgrounds together for one purpose – to enjoy and celebrate life to the fullest. It’s been such an amazing experience to build friendships and make memories with my LiveUp family!” Brett Cohen, was present as well as says he loves LiveUp because it “affords me an opportunity to connect with people I otherwise wouldn’t have the chance to, and allows me to celebrate the uniqueness and individuality of each person”.
A big thank you to everybody who attended our event, donated to our organization and contributed to the planning and the fun of another successful event! Thank you to everybody who supports LiveUp year after year by attending our programs and volunteering!
