Press Release (ePRNews.com) - New York City, New York - Nov 15, 2017 - KeyMedia Public Relations is honored to announce our colleagues Helene Greenberg Wyman, Meryl Messineo and YooRae Choi will be hosting an invitation-only holiday fundraiser on behalf of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) on December 1st and 2nd in the Greenwich Village, New York City. The IRC, one of the world’s top-rated charities, is renowned for helping millions of families recover from the effects of global crises such as war and famine. In New York and New Jersey, the IRC annually assists over 4,000 refugees and asylees to integrate into new communities and to kindle renewed hope for their futures. With all the controversy around US immigration policies, Messineo-Wyman are taking a proactive stand to help support this universal issue in the name of Ms Greenberg Wyman’s late husband Michael J. Wyman, who was a life-long supporter of the IRC.
The event will feature live music, refreshments, a presentation by the IRC and a few words about Michael J. Wyman. Anticipating a large turn-out, the hosts are spreading the fundraiser over two days in the home of Ms Greenberg Wyman. Ms Wyman shares, “My late husband was passionate about human rights and the misplacement of individuals and families during a crisis. This year would have been Michael’s 75th birthday and this fundraiser feels like it’s the best way to honor the man who believed in and worked diligently for the rights of all humans.”
The goals of the event are to encourage like-minded people to discuss and address the current issues around immigration and refugees, while providing financial aid for the IRC organization. Helene Greenberg Wyman and Meryl Messineo, having successfully run a Chelsea art gallery for over fifteen years, have expertise in the area of events. Guided by their imaginative visions their upcoming IRC fundraiser is sure to be as entertaining as it will be beneficial.
