Apr 11, 2019 / Mutual of America, NYC
New York City is known as the city that never sleeps, the city of dreams and opportunities! For SCO, it is the city that unlocks potential. SCO supporters and staff gathered to honor long-time child welfare advocate, Sr. Paulette LoMonaco, at the 1st Annual Speakeasy Soiree at the Mutual of America Building in New York City.
The focus of the Speakeasy-themed event was “Unlocking Potential through Early Childhood Education” and it was MC’ed by the 18 year veteran of stand-up comedy, Chuck Nice.
The night included live music by Troy Curtis Collective, floating casino tables, raffles sales, a cocktail napkin artist, and an unforgettable performance by Cadet singing Hallelujah by Alicia Keys. Cadet is an SCO client and an aspiring music therapist.
The night included remarks from a mother of three young children who have benefited from SCO’s home-and-center-based early childhood programs at SCO’s FirstStepNYC in Brownsville, Brooklyn.
