New York Methodist Hospital's Annual Charity "Soirée" Will Benefit Hurricane Sandy Victims

Brooklyn, NY

New York Methodist Hospital's annual Red Stocking Soirée fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, November 28 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Hospital's Carrington Pavilion Cafeteria, 506 Sixth Street, Brooklyn. Proceeds from this year's event will be directed to aiding Hospital employees who were most severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy. All are welcome to join staff, friends and neighbors for a festive evening to raise funds for those who support our Hospital and are now in need.

This "Taste of Brooklyn" event will feature culinary delights, fine wines and beverages from Park Slope restaurants. Participants will include Anthony's on 4th, Backyard, Bevi Wine, Baluchi's, Benchmark, Caramello, Casa Ventura, Customized Kegs, Faros Restaurant, La Bagel Delight, Oak Beverages, Okeanos, Pinkberry, Piramide Mexican Restaurant, Pull Brewing Co., Zito's Sandwich Shoppe and NYM's Executive Chef. The event will also feature a silent auction of unique gifts and experiences such as VIP tickets to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, tickets to The Rachael Ray Show, an in-home tasting with celebrity butcher Joshua Applestone, restaurant gift certificates and much more.

Red Stocking is the oldest holiday fundraising drive in the country, dating back to 1925 when Brooklyn schoolchildren and church groups were encouraged to fill Christmas stocking-shaped cardboard folders with coins to benefit their community hospital. The Red Stocking icon continues to be a great source of pride and inspiration for New York Methodist Hospital.

Tickets to the Red Stocking Soirée are $100 per person ($75 tax-deductible). Tickets can be purchased online at nym.org/2012redstocking or by calling NYM's Development Department at 718-780-5343.
