Event Highlights - Under the Bridge on 59th Street

Gala Honoree, Timothy J. Clark

This year in lieu of the Annual Breath of Life Gala, the Greater New York Chapter hosted Under the Bridge on 59th Street, a gala honoring American Airlines and Timothy J. Clark, Board Member. The event was held on Thursday, November 6th at Guastavino’s and was hosted by PIX 11 News Anchor and Emmy Award winner, Tamsen Fadal.

Aside from the electric atmosphere and abundant silent auction, the true highlight of the evening was a performance by 4-time Grammy Award winner, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, and former lead guitarist for the band The Eagles, Don Felder. 300 guests boogied down to classic hits such as “Hotel California,” “Life in the Fast Lane,” and “Take It Easy.” Following his performance, Don Felder ended his performance by auctioning off 3 of his autographed guitars. Honoree Timothy J. Clark was one of the lucky recipients of this priceless memento.

The gala was an immense success, raising $1 million dollars through ticket sales, sponsorships, silent auction, and Bid for a Cure.
