It was inspiring to see 250 people come out showing their support for us and making a statement that together we're going too keep making Syracuse a city on the rise!
We are so grateful for all of you who came. Special shout out to Sky Armory, Cooperative Federal, Jim Flint for his Syracuse Jeopardy, the band The Mix Tapes and all our board members: Esther Zorn, Brian Byrnes, Jim Riscica, Marybeth Gayne, Rosalyn Peterson, Allison Zales, Paul Colabufo, Kathy Speed and Matt Fahey. They pulled off one incredible event!
This event was so successful because of all of you. Last week alone we raised over $1500 in individual memberships! $20 and $25 at a time, we raised $1500 in a week! We will put all that money to good use to advance our mission, specifically to power our programs forward. This year will be about our programs that aim to improve the lives of kids in our city schools, promote and improve our neighborhoods and retain and attract people to our community.
