On Monday, April 11th, PPI supporters in the greater New York area celebrated the inaugural “Dropping Dimes for Peace” event at SNAP Sports Bar in Manhattan. The event not only brought together more than 150 of PPI’s friends and family to enjoy the evening, it also raised awareness and support for our programs worldwide. After viewing a Today Show piece on PPI, the event guests listened to Executive Director Brendan Tuohey tell stories from PPI’s ten-year journey and speak of the organization’s plans for growth.
In total, PPI raised $35,000 through ticket sales and a raffle, which included prizes ranging from Giants and Knicks tickets to dinner at trendy New York restaurants and guest passes to work out at Soul – Cycle.
PPI would like to thank everyone who attended, the host committee, the support of our sponsors, Tribeca Treats (for the delicious cupcakes!), and our venue SNAP Sports Bar. We’ll be back in New York for a similar (and even bigger!) event next year!
