LIFT Investments’ Spring Benefit in NYC Was A Huge Success

The first annual fundraiser to support efforts to alleviate poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa grossed over $18 thousand and SOLD OUT well before the event.

It was an evening of flowing cocktails, a silent auction and music provided by Hannah Bronfman. The benefit was held at gallery nine5, followed by an after-party at Avenue Night Club.
