Thank you on behalf of the BNMSF team to everyone who attended and supported the BNMSF 2018 NYC Social Fundraiser, thank you to donors of silent auction items, and thanks to our hosting venue. The turnout was great, the competitive silent auction was a success, and the 50/50 raffle was a win-win for the scholarship fund and winner! Overall, the event raised over $4,000 for scholarship fund. Thank you for sharing our passion for supporting the continued education of scholar athletes in Babak’s memory.
Proper West was the perfect space yet again for our event. Donors of auction items were key in ensuring fundraising goals were met and attendees were psyched about their prizes. Donors included:
· Yoga Vida
· Pure Barre
· Proper West
· EL Jewelry
· Modrn Sanctuary’s Modrn Salt
· MNDFL Meditation
· Tone House
· Rubmle Boxing
· Individuals who donated gift cards to Ohm Spa, Spiff for Men, and Airbnb.
