RaisedBy.Us board hosts "An Evening Celebrating Social Good in the New York Tech Community"
Thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers and sponsors (including major sponsors CommonBond, BounceX, VaynerMedia, and Cooley), the RaisedBy.Us board hosted “An Evening Celebrating Social Good in the New York Tech Community” on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at Knotel’s NoHo popup.
Over three hundred CEOs, heads of HR, and social good-focused members of the NY tech community celebrated NY tech workplace philanthropy programming. Nearly $240k in proceeds were raised to benefit RaisedBy.Us and its work in inspiring New York tech employees to give back to causes they love.
Programming included a panel discussion, moderated by Ben Lerer (CEO, Group Nine), featuring Gary Vaynerchuk (CEO, VaynerMedia), Kathryn Minshew (CEO, The Muse), David Klein (CEO, CommonBond), Beth Ferreira (Managing Director, FirstMark), and Andy Dunn (Founder, Bonobos). RaisedBy.Us partner company CEO Ryan Urban issued a challenge to the NY tech community and RaisedBy.Us Executive Director Matt Amalfitano told the story of his path to RaisedBy.Us and workplace social good.
