The New York Foundling, one of the City's oldest and largest
children and family services agencies, will host a benefit
dinner Tomorrow is Tonight on November 13, 2012 at the
Edison Ballroom in Manhattan. The event, planned in
conjunction with Annie The Musical's return to Broadway, is
expected to raise $1 million to support The Foundling's
innovative and nurturing services for New York City children
and families in need.
More than 500 Foundling supporters, all dressed with a
splash of red, will enjoy a 1930's-themed evening with a
cocktail menu that includes Manhattans, Sidecars and Sloe
Gin Fizz cocktails. Thirties styled hors d'oeuvres and
vegetables stuffed with everything imaginable will be
followed by red meat accompanied by layered Idaho potatoes.
Dessert Baked Alaska: just as Annie has in the musical. All
healthy and all adjusted to the contemporary palate.
With "Annie" composer Charles Strouse at the piano, New York
Foundling children will perform a medley including an
original rendition of the iconic "NYC" with lyrics
celebrating The New York Foundling and written by a New York
Foundling staff member. Annie the Musical cast members will
join the festivities after the show and lead a champagne
toast to celebrate the partnership with The Foundling.
Bill Rudin, Vice Chairman & CEO of Rudin Management Company,
Inc. and Anthony Watson Chairman and CEO of EmblemHealth,
Inc. will be honored for their strong and continuous support
for The Foundling.
