One of the world’s largest non-governmental educational organizations, ORT America, is known for their commitment to providing new and improved educational programs to over 300,000 students around the world each year. Through the help of six local ORT Next Generation groups made up of young professionals around the nation (with one in Atlanta), more than 55 countries are able to receive the benefits of competitive educational experiences that lead to promising careers. But being an ORT member doesn’t end there: the organization offers regular social and professional networking, unique volunteer opportunities and even once in a lifetime chances to travel to the nations supported by group.
Every year, the ORT Next Gen NYC Gala is a chance for the organization’s supporters from all around the nation to gather under one roof. This year’s Gala will be held on Wednesday December 3rd at the Avenue Nightclub in New York City. Hors d’oeuvres, an open cocktail bar, a silent auction, raffles, networking, and music will provide the backdrop for a night centered on “A Celebration of Education.” All proceeds from the event will benefit ORT America’s educational programs in Cuba.
