2014 Winter Benefit - Call for Talent

Dear New Amsterdam Families and Community:

As many of you know, the winter benefit plays a key role in raising funds for the school, as well as raising awareness of the school in our neighborhood, and our city.  It is also a great time for us to come together as a community - sans kids!

As we begin planning this year’s event, to take place in mid-February 2014, our goal is to craft an evening that is as rich and vibrant as the downtown community our school calls home. In these early stages we would like to ask each of you if you have a connections, of whatever degree, with any of New York’s many world-class performers and artists. If you do, or know someone that does, we would love to hear from you. Musicians, actors, dancers, trapeze artists, all are welcome! Our intent is to let the evening take shape around the talent we enlist.

So take a moment to flip through your rolodex (real or virtual), and let one of us know if anything comes to mind, however tenuous a link it might be.

Please email co-chairs with your ideas:
Nathan Laffin - nathanlaffin@me.com
Howard Dulaney - howard.dulaney@newamsterdamchildhood.org

Thank you in advance. We’re looking forward to sharing more details about the winter benefit later this year-and to seeing you there in February!
