By: KeyMedia Public Relations
IRC's New York/New Jersey Development Director Alex Earles shares, "We are so thrilled and grateful that the event in honor of Michael J. Wyman was able to harbor as many donations as it did. The event and campaign went beyond our expectations. They also provided us with outstanding visibility amongst an important group of caring individuals and organizations. Their support is invaluable to the IRC."
The two-day event hosted at the home of Helene Greenberg Wyman in Greenwich Village attracted close to 100 guests who generously contributed to the campaign in honor of her late husband's life and work as a respected humanitarian. Powered through the CrowdRise platform, this fundraising drive will directly impact and benefit the lives of those who are in desperate need of help as Michael J. Wyman would have wished. There were also private donors contributing to the IRC directly, in honor of the event and honoree.
