The charitable organization, Heroes in Transition, will be hosting their fourth annual gala in New York to recognize the support and charitable contributions given by members and supporters. On Friday May 9, 2014 at The Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City the charity says thank you to sponsors who’ve helped support the work of the organization that bridge the gap between immediate help and the sometimes long process of benefit delivery by the government.
The organization supports those who’ve served or who are serving America, offering home modifications for disabled veterans, transitional support and group therapy, financial support for service families including assistance dogs.
Founder of the organization, Michael Warshaw, told eWedNewz,
“The role of our organization is to step in and help military members and their families who’ve dedicated themselves to protect our way of life and sometimes have to wait for government benefits to live. Through the generosity of our supporters we’re raising money to help them and their families who really could use a helping hand.”
Sponsors and supporters of the organization includes a notable array of companies giving back to the people who fight for them under dangerous conditions and growing world unrest.
This year’s honoree, Brian Weintraub of FLOW Formal, donated a portion of sales to the organization resulting in a sizable sum, matched by company (and personal) donations.
According to Michael Warshaw,
“I know Brian from college and his dedication to supporting the military men and all they do for us led us to our decision. “
Since announcing their support of the charitable work of Heroes In Transition Brian Weintraub and FLOW Formal have given significant amounts of money to help military members and their families.
Because of Warshaw’s background and affiliations in the financial world corporate sponsorships continue to trickle in, even at a time of cutbacks and budget awareness.
“They can always use more help, especially in these times. For example H.I.T can still use support in ticket sales, live auction items and sponsors for their upcoming event,” says this year’s honoree, Weintraub.
Friday May 9, 2014 from 7:30PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
