Reading Partners fourth annual benefit

On May 24, Reading Partners New York’s Advisory Board will be holding its fourth annual benefit to support the organization’s growing work in New York City. The event will honor Kathleen McCarthy (Global Chief Operating Officer, Real Estate at Blackstone) and Matthew Baldwin (Advisory Board Member), who are champions of our work. Over drinks and hors d’oeuvres, 300-400 guests will gather at Bryant Park Grill to network with other professionals who care about education and giving back to their community, and will learn about Reading Partners’ program and impact from multiple stakeholders. For more information, please contact Isabella Cucchi, special projects manager (, (646) 395-3831).

The event will run from 7pm – 9:30 pm. There will be a Rothschild VIP cocktail hour and wine tasting between 6pm – 7pm, sponsored by Sherry Lehman and Palm Bay International.
