Thank you to all who supported this year’s Annual Benefit & Silent Auction on October 20!

Your invaluable support will go a long way in helping us keep guns away from youth, since it helps expand and enrich youth and community education programs by the NYAGV Education Fund. And thanks for coming out to honor leaders in gun violence prevention:  Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy, Cyrus Vance, Jr., and Amy Domini; with recognition of Joan Wallstein. 

Below are a few photos from the evening. (Photos: Joe Quint.)   For additional photos, see the photo album on NYAGV’s Facebook page.  (Missed the event? You can still support these valuable programs with a tax deductible donation  to the NYAGV Education Fund. Thank you!)
