ANDRUS 90th Anniversary Gala Raises $500,000

February 11, 2019

Over 350 people gathered for ANDRUS’ 90th Anniversary Gala on Friday, November 2nd at The New York Botanical Garden located in Bronx, NY. The sold-out fundraising event featured a silent and live auction, as well as a lively Fund-the-Future paddle raise for ANDRUS’ numerous therapeutic programs, including the Horticulture Program and Hope Space, which give the children in the organization’s programs the benefit of experiencing beauty every day.

With the generous support of sponsors, honorees, donors, and friends, ANDRUS raised nearly $500,000 that will benefit therapeutic programs for vulnerable children and families in the community. 

This year the gala honored Levitt-Fuirst Associates, Ltd., an insurance brokerage firm. Levitt-Fuirst Co-Presidents, Ken Fuirst and Jason Schiciano, accepted the evening’s honor, on behalf of the entire company, for the incredible work that they do supporting ANDRUS and the community. Because of the many Levitt- Fuirst employees who support ANDRUS annually, students’ lives have been transformed. They show ANDRUS’ students the power of hard work and the value of seeing a project through to the end as they work as a team to revitalize the campus greenhouses and gardens.
