Concern Worldwide U.S., the international humanitarian organization, will welcome 250 young professionals to the Concern Winter Ball on Friday, December 6th, 2013.

Those in attendance will enjoy an evening that will delight their palate with great food and wine while offering an uplifting experience focused on helping people achieve major improvements in their lives.

Guests on the night can gear up for the holiday season with a bash featuring great food, cocktails, live music, and dancing at New York City’s ultimate urban oasis, the exquisite Loeb Boathouse in Central Park.

The night will kick off with a cocktail hour featuring the incredible music of Irish American song artist Tara O’Grady. Dinner and a presentation about Concern’s work will be followed by an auction and many chances to win spot prizes including tickets to “Sleep No More,” a voucher towards Rent the Runway, classes at SoulCycle, golf outings, and gift certificates to many hot New York City bars and restaurants.

Following the auction, the night will continue with dancing until midnight followed by the famous Winter Ball after-party.

The charity organization is inviting companies to become part of the Concern family and support the Winter Ball.

Any corporate sponsor will be provided with high profile branding and visibility opportunities. Concern Worldwide U.S. will be happy to discuss acknowledgement options and long term, ongoing support.
