November 15

The NYC event was a great success with over 60 people in attendance! We received a beautiful letter from United States Senator, Kirsten Gillibrand regarding the benefit – click HERE to view.  We auctioned off some awesome items – check out the list below.  Below is the video speech from our President, Mimi Levitt from the event.

Thank you to our A Friend in the City Sponsors, host committee and silent auction contributors – we could not have done this without you. Additionally, thank you so much to all of our “Friends” who attended the event, we are incredibly appreciative for all of your support, past, present and future!

Creighton Hart Title: 1935 “Skier” Print — Framed 1935 “Skier” Print By Philip Rahm. This classic and unique image of a skier negotiating a slalom gate was originally carved and printed during the 1934-1935 ski season. After Philip’s passing, the original linoleum block was found in his workshop in Missouri. His Grandson, Creighton Hart, was granted permission by his family to create a limited edition series of this image. It has been printed on the same archival paper with the same matting presentation as the original print. Approximately 13.5 inches by 17.5 inches.
