Thank you to everyone who supported AFC’s 2016 Spring Benefit! On June 8, more than 600 guests joined us at Three Sixty° in downtown Manhattan to honor our award recipients, Marc and Cathy Lasry and Yshamar Gestine. Thanks to the incredible generosity of our 75 sponsors and our many individual supporters, we raised a record amount to help New York City students in the coming year!
