2010 GOTOs Annual Black-tie Gala

2010 GOTOs Annual Black-tie Gala

New York, NY (Feb. 27, 2009) – New York’s finest dolls and gents put on the Ritz February 26 at GOTOs annual black-tie gala. More than 450 attendees gathered for Jazz and Gin at the famed Capitale in downtown Manhattan.

Partygoers kicked up their heels to the musical stylings of the JC Hopkins big band and took a chance on casino games for special prizes. The event raised over $50,000 for scholarships to a vibrant summer arts camp for middle schoolers.

Since 2001, GOTO (www.thegotogroup.org) has enriched the lives of inner city kids by providing scholarships to attend immersive arts camps for three consecutive summers. To date, GOTO has raised more than $1 million dollars, sending over 130 underprivileged students to camp.

GOTO partners with schools in the five boroughs of New York City and Boston, and evaluates nominees from principals and art educators. Our New York scholars attend Appel Farm (http://www.appelfarm.org), a 176-acre facility located in bucolic Elmer New Jersey that provides a welcoming environment where students can develop their raw talents under the guidance of creative professionals and make new friends outside of their neighborhoods.

Such arts programs are more important now than ever before. The economic downturn has dried up funding for arts education, forcing many schools to severely cut programs.

All of the proceeds from GOTO’s semi-annual events help our kids. Our parties are attended by GOTO’s dedicated volunteers and hundreds of other young NYC professionals. For more information go to www.thegotogroup.org.
