Here’s a chance to enjoy a delicious brunch, see a fabulous production of 42nd Street, support VisionHero AND LaGuardia Arts High School through Alumni & Friends— all on one great December day.
Our second winter fundraiser starts at noon on the Upper West Side home of VisionHero co-founder Peter Frishauf. At 3:30 pm we’ll walk, bike, subway, bus or taxi our way to the Lincoln Center home of LaGuardia Arts High School to see a professional-grade performance of 42nd Street.
LaGuardia, the “Fame,” school, is the extrodinary public high school that feeds the city’s most talented arts students — the stars of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Tickets for this show at LaGuardia are hard to come by, but we have secured a limited block of premium seats for those willing to show us some special love.
A big thank you to digital artist Stephen Hopkins for this succinct video showcasing the VisionHero website. And thank you too, to our donors and supporters in city government, many of whom are recognized in the video. Sorry we couldn’t salute everyone — it would have been a 10 minute video if we did!
We’re pleased to announce that the people behind the VisionHero.org website have created a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation in the State of New York to support our work. VisionHero, Inc. was certified by New York State on September 20, 2016.
We’ll keep you updated on new developments at VisionHero, Inc.
Being our own nonprofit gives us the opportunity to raise money to support our work without having to rely on other nonprofits to administer funds.
We’re grateful to our friends at the non-profit OpenPlans, Inc. for giving us a professional, friendly, and pro-bono home in our first years — a time when we created our first groundbreaking VisionHero online program for the New York City Department of Transportation now being used in middle schools.
