Needlers Foundation to Honor Carr Xerox at Annual June Gala Benefiting Children’s Charities

Dr. Max Gomez from CBS 2 to MC Needlers Foundation June 10th Gala

New York, NY, May 14, 2014 — The Needlers Foundation, a leading not-for-profit philanthropic organization headquartered in NYC’s Fashion Center known for supporting children’s causes, is hosting its annual New York fundraising June Gala on Tuesday, June 10th at 6:30 p.m. at 230 Fifth. This June, the Needler’s will honor Carr Xerox executives, David J. Herbine and Anthony DelGrosso for their support and charitable contributions to The Needlers Foundation.

The event is a fundraiser dinner reception gathering members and friends of the Needlers. Every year they honor individuals that have demonstrated a commitment to the community. As responsible business associates, David J. Herbine and Anthony DelGrosso have supported charitable organizations and his year decided to contribute to The Needlers organization. The Master of Ceremonies for this year’s gala will be CBS 2 Medical Reporter, Dr. Max Gomez. Children that have benefitted from the Needlers’ efforts will also be present at the gala.

Scott Fishman, President of The Needlers Foundation, commented, “It’s terrific to gather every year to support children’s causes and make a difference in their lives. Needlers’ events are filled with loyal followers and new friends from all industries that gather to help kids with rare disease. This year we are happy to recognize David Herbine and Anthony DelGrosso, two respectful businessmen that are committed to supporting a worthy cause. The funds from these events go to our medical partners at leading pediatric centers and directly change an underprivileged child’s life forever,” he added.

Anthony DelGrosso, Carr Xerox Director of Major Account Sales, said, “When choosing a charity to partner with, we look for a few things: integrity, community involvement, and dedication to a cause. We felt that The Needlers Foundation not only met our criteria but far exceeded it. Hearing stories and seeing the lives it has touched made it an easy decision for us to support this charity. We couldn’t be happier to be honorees at the 2014 Needlers June Gala. We look forward to a long partnership and to helping The Needlers expand their reach.”

Alejandro Berenstein, MD, Director, Hyman-Newman Institute for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Roosevelt and Mount Sinai Beth Israel, commented, “The Needlers Foundation is a unique group of dedicated individuals with a unique devotion to help the most fragile in our society: children who are unable to pay for their medical care or have to travel great distances to access it. The Needlers Foundation supports patients and their families by absorbing hospital and transportation costs and connecting them with world-class physicians who donate their time and expertise. With the support of Needlers these children are given access to invaluable social services that may not have otherwise been available to them.”

The Needlers Foundation has exclusively benefited children’s charities awarding millions of dollars to hospitals and children’s foundations across the country by partnerships with many worthy organizations. One of Needlers’ key partners, The Hyman-Newman Institute for Neurology and Neurosurgery, has been the recipient of $2.5 million in donations from the Needlers, including a $1 million gift that established the “Needlers Pediatric Intensive Care Unit” at Roosevelt Hospital. The Needlers has also benefited The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore Hospital, Juvenile Diabetes Association, the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, and Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania Foundation.

The Needlers Foundation thanks all the support it receives annually from its members and corporate sponsors. It also recognizes Fattoria Fibbiano Wines for becoming the newest Needlers corporate supporter and sponsor of the upcoming raffle: “Weekend in Tuscany” during Columbus Day Weekend,HTTP://FATTORIAFIBBIANO.COM.

Italian Night 2015 at Pasquale Rigoletto

Saturday, April 25th, 2015


Started in 2005 Italian night was developed as an intimate evening for some of our most dedicated Needlers. Always thrown at one of New York’s premier Italian restaurants it is an evening that has quickly developed into a highlight of our events calendar growing from a small intimate party into a larger fundraising event.
