Throwback to A Winter of Discontent: A benefit for Deline’s Gift

It’s brutally cold in New York this week and we are not content about it.

Discontent made us think back to A Winter of discontent: the benefit for Deline’s Gift held last winter to support our work. This is a throwback to that evening.

It was an incredible night of great art, food, fun and purpose! But most importantly, it was a night of human connection. Friends came out in the bitter cold and rain to support and donate to our cause.

We felt, connected, shared great food, and raised much needed funds that will help move the needle.

And then there was Derek, the man who put the play together and offered it as a benefit to Deline’s Gift. He worked tirelessly to direct the play and promote the event. You name it, he did it just so the fundraiser would be perfect. And it was. Thank you does not even cut it.
