The Football for Good Fund – Virtual New York Gala
Our first ever Virtual New York Gala was a great success, raising a total in the region of $118K/£92K.
The two-hour Gala was hosted by Hugo Straney and special guests included Lisbon Lion Jim Craig, 9-in-a-row Captain, Scott Brown and music icon, Sir Rod Stewart. The event also included a live auction, silent auction, pledge drive and music from Liam McGrandles. Special thanks to the Chair of our New York Gala Committee, Paul Geaney, and his fellow members for helping us deliver a very special evening.
Although we couldn’t be in Manhattan in person due to the current COVID-19 crisis, it was an honour to go virtual and have so many supporters from both sides of the Atlantic get behind us, as they always do.
Monies raised will be devoted to our ongoing Football for Good Fund (FFGF), to support those who are most vulnerable within our local communities and in North America.
