To help ring in the holidays, EJUSA’s Associate Board gathered friends and colleagues to celebrate with EJUSA staff, board members, and local supporters. More than 50 people came to “Libations and Justice for All” at the offices of Thoughtworks in midtown Manhattan to learn more about EJUSA’s vision and how they can help achieve it. EJUSA Executive Director Shari Silberstein gave a presentation that included an overview of EJUSA’s impact in 2015 and a preview of our exciting 2016 agenda.
The Associate Board is an all-volunteer group of young local professionals whose purpose is to advance EJUSA’s mission by increasing our visibility in New York City and recruiting new supporters for our work.
This was the Associate Board’s second event and first fundraiser, and they exceeded their initial goal, raising over $2,000 at the event. Their fundraising continues until year-end through a special Fundly campaign.
Special thanks for the wonderful evening of food, wine, and mingling goes to the team at Thoughtworks, who provided a beautiful space and helped with set-up. Also to the host committee:
Christopher Taylor Edwards – co-chair
Maura Tracy – co-chair
Quinn Judson Caruthers – host
Jonathan Lesser – co-host
