Building upon the success of its inaugural chairman’s charity, the New York Chapter of SCC (NYSCC) has unveiled plans for its next event: “The Sky’s the Limit,” which will be held Oct. 23 at Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, NJ.
The objective of the event is to celebrate all the Chapter’s accomplishments, give back to the membership and support a charity. This year, the selected charity is Reading is Fundamental (RIF), the oldest and largest children’s and family non-profit literacy organization in the U.S.
A cocktail reception will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Liberty Science Center’s“Skyscraper Exhibit,” the world’s largest exhibit of its kind. The cocktail reception will be followed by a seated buffet and dancing in the center’s large Science Court.
At NYSCC’s first chairman’s charity event, the Personal Care Product Council’s program “Look Good, Feel Better”received a $10,000 donation. NYSCC’s goal is to match that donation this year and examine other ways it can to contribute to RIF.
Individual tickets are $85 and corporate tables of 10 are $800.
