I care about NY Cares.
One of my New Year’s resolutions was to take a break from working on my shows every once in awhile in order to work with charitable organizations.
I’ve got some fun stuff in mind on how I can help, from “Give Back” days (where my staff and I take a day off and spend it working with an org in need), to online auctions, and a whole lot more.
Choosing an organization to help wasn’t as easy as making the resolution.
I knew I wanted to support a local organization that helps the people in need that I see everyday. New York City is a tough place to live and a tough place to work, and I’m blessed enough to be able to do both comfortably.
And when I asked around about the best local charity to support, all my friends and associates came back with only one . . . NY Cares (word of mouth in action, btw)
NY Cares is an amazing institution that “meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.”
And if you’ve been reading my blog, and if you know anything about me, you can see why I love it.
Because they are a get-your-hands-dirty, action organization. They do stuff. And they want you to help them do it.
I first learned about them this past year, when Godspell supported their annual coat drive with our own “Give Him Your Coat As Well” drive, and I was so impressed that I signed up to support them some more.
And now, I am beyond humbled to say that they have chosen to honor me at their annual “Soiree” on March 1st. In other words . . . it’s time to party!
I hope you’ll join me in celebrating another great year of work by NY Cares by coming to the Soiree. The details are as follow:
NY Cares Soiree
Thursday, March 1st
311 West 57th Street (betweeb 8 & 9th Aves)
7 – 10pm (VIP Cocktail Hour from 6 – 7pm)
I look forward to seeing you on the 1st, and we can both thank NY Cares for caring so f#@$ing much.
