Mary Prenon | July 2015

The Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation will host its First Annual Gala on Thursdday Sept. 17 from 6p.m. to 11p.m. at Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle.The event will benefit several local charities including Make-A-Wish® Hudson Valley, a non-profit group that grants the wishes of Hudson Valley children who are suffering with life-threatening medical conditions.

The Foundation was created in 2013 for the purpose of giving back to local communities by donating funds to charitable organizations throughout the Hudson Valley.  While the Foundation has held smaller events and contributed to local non-profit organizations in the past, this is its first major fundraising undertaking.

“We thought it was important to really put the Foundation on the map and make everyone aware of the great work that’s being accomplished by charities like Make-A-Wish and so many others throughout the Hudson Valley,” said Drew Kessler, HGAR President.  “This is going to be a fantastic event, and we’re confident we’ll be able to raise significant monies to benefit our local charities.”

Tickets are $125 per person and include a one-and-a half-hour open bar, cocktail appetizers, dinner, coffee and dessert, plus a DJ and dancing.  Tables for 10 are also available for $1,200, and sponsorships are being offered as follows:

Diamond Sponsorship: $7,500 Ruby Sponsorship: $5,000

Sapphire Sponsorship $2,500 Emerald Sponsorship $1,000
