3rd Annual Cocktails with a Cause was a sizzling success for St. Mary’s Hospital for Children

Members of the Financial Services Industry, joined by special guest Stephen Baldwin and Miss USA 2012, Nana Meriwether raise double the funds as compared to last year’s benefit

For the third year in a row members of the financial services industry in New York have shown their profound dedication to supporting children and families with special needs at St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children. At this year’s Cocktails with a Cause—a premier benefit fundraiser, industry professionals and special guest Stephen Baldwin were able to raise over $140,000.

The first-class event was held at the STK Rooftop in New York City and though temperatures reached a high of ninety-eight degrees, the summer heat did not deter over 300 guests from enjoying the evening. The event was spearheaded by industry professionals and committee members Chris Savino, Suzanne Antolini, Rebecca Aslin, Jennifer Blaser, Frank Biondo, Anthony Coniglio, Steven Crutchfield, Tom Jarck, Michael Novosel and Katherine Sullivan and featured a live auction that had guests bidding on extravagant prizes.

Actor Stephen Baldwin led the auction, inviting guests to bid on items including four Yankee Legend seats; a round of golf for four at the prestigious Deepdale Golf Club; Pre-Super Bowl 2014 Reception seats at the distinguished Franco Harris’ Immaculate Reception & Dinner at Bryant Park Grill for ten guests and 2 nights accommodation at Winwood Inn and Condos at Windham complete with dinner and cocktails.
