Point Foundation held its annual New York City Cornerstone Event at Bumble and bumble’s Meatpacking District location on Monday, October 15. Nearly 150 guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers as they heard from Point Scholar Angela Filley, who shared her compelling story about her experiences and the successes she’s achieved with Point Foundation. Other scholars in attendance included Adaobi Kanu, Brandon Lee Markowitz, Taylor Clarke, Mounia Abousaid, Jacob Tobia and Maggie Keenan-Bolger. Alumni included Andrew Park, Daan Erickson, John Pachankis, Diego Arango, and Ellen Adams.
Under the direction of Co-Chairs Peter Lichtenthal and Jonah Trout, the Host Committee raised nearly $45,000! Joining in the hard work were Host Committee members Jennifer Barbetta, Claudia Caine, Jim Cummings, James Derek Mize, Mitch Draizin, Jennfier Hatch, Eric Kristensen, Peter Lease, Patrick O’Donnell and Richard Ziegelasch!
