Spring Event Raises Nearly $700,000

Many thanks to those who joined us in honoring Blythedale Trustee, grateful parent and founder of Jacob’s Cure, Jordana Holovach at A Celebration of Blythedale at Tribeca Rooftop in Manhattan on May 3rd.  

The event, emceed by Donny Deutsch, recognized Jordana for her advocacy on behalf of children with complex medical needs and raised nearly $700,000 for Blythedale’s Assistive Technology Program. As technology continues to advance, children with special needs are becoming increasingly more integrated into the world around them. Assistive Technology opens the doors for children with special medical needs to increase participation in school settings, build social interactions, and access their environments in a variety of specialized ways. Blythedale’s dedicated team of more than 50 expertly trained occupational and speech therapists conduct in-depth evaluations, identify assistive technology options, and implement training on appropriate devices or software. A multi-disciplinary approach ensures carryover across all medical disciplines, as well as a smooth transition with equipment to home and school.

Attendees watched a short video on the services the Assistive Technology Program offered through the lens of grateful families whose lives were changed by the program. Charity Auctioneer Charles Antin was at the event to lead our "Mission Moment". The positive energy and excitement was palpable as we far exceeded our "Mission Moment" fundraising goal of $150,000 ending with more than $200,000 pledged by guests in less than ten minutes.
