Elevate New York’s night “On The Run” with Beyoncé

Article by Elevate Staffer - July 2014

On Saturday, July 12, Elevate New York was given the ultimate surprise – tickets to the sold-out Beyoncé and Jay-Z “On the Run” concert at MetLife stadium! Thanks to Beyonce and the #BeyGOOD initiative, everyone had an incredible night together.

Elevate New York Beyonce concert

We are fortunate to say that this wasn’t our first interaction with Queen Bey herself. Earlier this year, Elevate New York participated in the Chime for Change one-year anniversary celebration, where one of our students (who helped inspire the Chime for Change foundation) was lucky enough to meet Beyoncé and pose for a picture.

#BeyGood’s support of Elevate New York has helped our Elevate girls discover the power of positive self-image, the courage to fulfill their dreams and the possibilities of living a life without limitations. Thank you again to #BeyGOOD for your continued love and support and for giving Elevate New York a night to remember.

Fall Fundraiser

Article by Elevate Staffer - November 2012

On November 27th, Elevate New York held its Fall Fundraiser at Yotel Hotel in midtown.

Guests heard compelling stories from our students and partners, and learned more about our holistic work, that includes teaching 13 character qualities and life skills to the students we serve. Among the night’s attendees were actor Sharif Atkins and his co-host Bethany Hotchkiss, Colorodo UpLift CEO Mike Painter, founding Elevate board member and the evening’s keynote speaker Andrew DeCurtis, advisory board member Bryan Abreu, model Willie Bradford, singer Kate Nauta, and Instinet President for the Americas Jonathan Kellner.

Overall, the evening was a wonderful success. We reached 1/3 of our goal for the evening, and raised over $100,000 to support our work that Elevates the lives of students in New York City. Thanks to the generosity of our donors at the event, we will now be able to hire an additional full-time teacher for the upcoming year, allowing us to expand the number of students we work with and to more effectively serve, our current students.
