A Benefit Dinner for New York City's Asphalt Green

Whenever my busy schedule allows, I always try to attend benefit dinners that support good causes and important organizations.

Last week, I attended one such event at New York City’s iconic Rainbow Room. It was a special dinner to celebrate the work of Asphalt Green, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping individuals achieve good health through sports and fitness programs - in particular, bringing free swim and other fitness activities to underserved children across the city. The event also honored my friend, Andy Nussbaum, for all the work he has done during his 13-years as Asphalt Green’s Board Chairman. Andy is the husband of Darcy Miller Nussbaum, a talented illustrator, author and celebrations expert who was also one of the founding editors of Martha Stewart Weddings. The evening was a lot of fun and a huge success. 300-guests attended the affair - the largest single-day fundraiser in the organization’s history.  

Here are some photos - enjoy.
