NYCHC GALA ON NOVEMBER 5
The New York City Hemophilia Chapter will hold its 2011 Gala on Saturday, November 5th, with cocktails at five o’clock and dinner at six. The event will be held at Bayard’s in India House, located at One Hanover Square in New York City’s fabled downtown district. The historic structure, which was built as a family residence nearly three centuries ago, previously served as the New York Cotton Exchange and as a private club for overseas merchants and traders. The building has been completely restored to its former glory and features dramatic architecture, numerous chandeliers and splendid examples of antique nautical art from the period. It will serve as an elegant and festive setting for this very special event.
The Award of Distinction will be presented during the event to New York State Assemblyman Micah Kellner. Assemblyman Kellner sponsored the country’s first successful state legislation prohibiting a high copay “Tier IV” drug category, and more recently he sponsored our legislation designed to get New York’s CHIP program to cover outpatient clotting factor.
The Gala will feature live music, a silent auction, and special guests. Sponsorship packages and individual seats are available. For more information or to make your reservations click here.
