Littauer’s THE EVENT holds rank with area’s largest organizations

Gloversville, NY…Nathan Littauer’s Foundation annual fundraising gala reached a distinctive threshold last week; It was ranked as one of the top fundraising events in the region. THE EVENT, The Foundation’s annual gala, now in its eighth year was listed as the 25th most successful fundraising event by The Business Review’s Book of Lists. “The List” is a compendium ranking the most successful fundraising events by net revenue per single event.

According to Susan Kiernan, Vice President of Development, “In 2009, THE EVENT raised $84,000 which is nearly 50% of our annual commitment to the Hospital.” She added, “And this figure of $84,000 is above and beyond our $4.5 million dollar capital campaign donations. THE EVENT is a signature gala for our region. Our wonderful cause coupled with tight fiduciary management makes it a success, year after year.”

“This is just one more example of how our community tirelessly supports our hospital” explained Laurence E. Kelly the Hospital’s CEO and President. He continued, “Even during a global financial crisis, our supporters dug deep and gave. While most organizations had to reconfigure or abandon philanthropic campaigns, we exceeded our fundraising goals.”

“The List” was published by The Business Review’s, print edition for the week of December 11-17th, 2009.
