41°-74° Virtual Holiday Fundraiser 2020
Friday, December 18th, 2020
12:00pm - 1:30pm
As you know, one of our organization's main pillars is philanthropy; therefore, we felt strongly about keeping the fundraising element for our event.
Registration for the event is open to everyone and registration is free. However in an effort to raise funds for our chosen charity, we are asking for a suggested donation of $25 to participate.
Any donation of $25 or more will automatically enter you for a chance to win one of (6) $50 and (2) $100 gift cards to be raffled at the event.
100% of the donations raised will go towards our selected charity.

Please note, if you wish to be considered for the raffle, you must complete your minimum $25 donation by Thursday December 17th. We will continue to accept donations after this date and throughout the duration of the event, however they will not be entered in the raffle if received after December 17th.
The Starfish Program is our designated charity for this year's event. Dr. Samuel Sigal is in charge of the Starfish Program which is to educate approximately 120,000 people in the Bronx. This community, mostly from West Africa, unfortunately are not being screened for the infection of Hepatitis B, which is rapidly spreading among them. Hepatitis B causes cirrhosis and liver cancer and the need for a liver transplant. The program is trying to prevent the spread by education and screening blood tests. All funds from the club fundraiser will pay 100% for blood tests screenings and vaccinations. Please visit our "Philanthropy" page to learn more about the Montefiore Starfish Program.
We are delighted to announce that Terry Dale will be this year's speaker at our event!
