MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. – Grand Prix New York of Mount Kisco raised more than $1,200 for Support Connection—a Yorktown Heights-based not-for-profit organization that provides free confidential services to those battling breast and ovarian cancer—at its Support-apalooza fundraiser April 12.
“Our goal was not only to raise money for Support Connection, but to raise awareness of the wonderful work they do to help people cope with the affects of breast and ovarian cancers,” said GPNY Vice President Nat Mundy.
More than 70 people attended to hear bands Vintage Vinyl, Boomer Baby, Fast Eddie and the Silver Sharks, Hank Cash and Friends and The Hooligans – all of whom donated their time to rock the night away. Corporate Audio Visual Services of Elmsford and DJ Storm were also on hand to keep guesting jamming out.
“We are so grateful for the continued support of GPNY as well as BuzzPotential and Corporate Audio Visual Services. Through their commitment, they are helping Support Connection bring help and hope to the many people affected by breast and ovarian cancer who turn to us,” said Katherine Quinn, executive director of Support Connection.
From the time it opened in 2008, Grand Prix New York has been actively involved in community outreach and fundraising efforts, raising thousands of dollars for local charities by hosting high-profile events. Grand Prix New York is located at 333 N. Bedford Road in Mount Kisco.
