A Memorable “Night for the Fight!” Under the Stars!

Young Leadership Committee gathers friends and supporters for fundraising party at “Sky Room” high above Times Square.

Thanks to all our amazing friends and supporters—new and old—who shrugged off record heat on Wednesday night and made their way to the rooftop “Sky Room” above Times Square to mingle, sip margaritas and other drinks at our open bar, and bid on tons of auction items to raise funds for support services and research grants.

The annual Young Leadership Committee event also featured a powerful performance of “Vanity” by Def Jam Poet Shanelle Gabriel and music by DJ Best Out.
