PRESS RELEASE: Reveal Corporate Fundraiser
THOMSON REUTERS, NBC, TIME WARNER AND NEW YORK TIMES HOST FUNDRAISER TO SUPPORT REVEAL
Close to 200 attendees gathered from top media agencies in support of celebrating the beauty and dignity of women healing from domestic violence
NEW YORK, August 23, 2012 – Thomson Reuters Corp., NBC., Time Warner Inc. and the New York Times Co. hosted a networking cocktail event on August 8 in support of Reveal, an entirely volunteer-run organization that partners with prominent New York City shelters to provide services that foster uplifting experiences for women healing from domestic violence. Held at the Sky Room, the event drew close to 200 attendees and raised more than $600 through a raffle sponsored by all of the attending media companies.
“Our joint event served as a great conversation starter among industry peers,” said Mia Chang, a customer administration specialist at Thomson Reuters and the fundraiser’s organizer. “Not only did my colleagues and peers make new contacts and deepen others, but most importantly, awareness was created and interest peaked in helping to empower women healing from domestic violence.”
“We were thrilled with the turnout of the networking event,” said Kendra Chao, Reveal’s 2011-2012 president. “With one in four American women experiencing domestic violence at least once in their lifetime, it was moving to see everyone come together to help honor these women. Because of the generous contributions received, we look forward to serving and honoring even more women this upcoming year.”
Proceeds will be used to support Reveal’s annual Valentine’s Day Makeover event and monthly workshops, which together serve more than 100 women annually.
