Last month, I covered a fundraiser held by Safe Horizon at Cipriani located in Wall Street. At a quick glance, Safe Horizon is the nation’s leading victim assistance organization and touches the lives of more than 250,000 affected by crime and abuse each year. Their fundraising event, the 17th Annual Champion Awards, had a decent amount of special guests such as actors and actresses from movies and TV shows like 30 Rock, Law & Order: SVU, The Sopranos, Gossip Girl, Smash and much more. Other notable special guests include Susan Sarandon, Orfeh, Lonnie Quinn and Chris Wragge.
Overall, the fundraiser proved to be successful raising nearly $800,000 which will be used to help continue to provide helpful services to domestic violence victims, homeless youth, legal services, advocacy and much more.
