NAC’s 10th Annual Women for Women Luncheon
On May 24, 2023, we held our 10th Annual Women for Women Luncheon with Keynote Speaker, Jonathan Darman at the Metropolitan Club in New York City. Jonathan is a Journalist & Historian, and Author of Becoming FDR: The Personal Crisis that Made a President. Attendees got a behind-the-scenes look at the writing of this extraordinary and moving book.
It was a riveting discussion, shedding light on how a midlife infection from the polio virus upended Franklin Roosevelt’s life and made him into an inspiring and compassionate leader, and the man who could lead his country through its own darkest hours. Guests were inspired by his story of courage and perseverance, as well as the triumphant spirit, one shared by our NAC Kids. It truly was a great day, and a successful one as well, raising $60,000 for the children and families we serve.
Thank you to Jonathan for sharing his work with us and thank you to everyone who made the event an afternoon we won’t soon forget! By attending this event, guests enable NAC to continue providing comprehensive medical and mental health services for New York City’s most vulnerable children.
