THE GREAT GATSBY GALA |Benefiting the United Cerebral Palsy of New York

28 Mar


The Great Gatsby Gala, in aid of the United Cerebral Palsy  of New York (UCP), was an event that consisted of a group of generous people  including a list of celebrities getting together to support a worthy cause  through fun, fine food and gambling. The Dreamland Orchestra contributed to  the evening’s 1920’s inspired theme with a repertoire of songs that had your  toes tapping and shoulders moving. Guests had access to gaming tables and an exquisite buffet dinner provided on location by Fino Ristorante  Italiano.

Celebrity host for the evening Jill Flint, from the hit  television show, “Royal Pains” shared a very personal story as to why she has  recently come on board to support such a worthy cause.   “I  grew up with someone who was affected by cerebral Palsy: my baby sitters son.  She was not only taking care of my brother and me but she was also taking care  of her son as well”

Flint came from a small town where to access resources  for someone who suffered from cerebral palsy was very limited and difficult to  say the least. Watching her babysitter ensure that her son lived a content  life, Flint observed a woman trying to provide some normality to challenges of  simple things that we take for granted including being able to speak or  communicate, do homework and participate in a variety of general activities  just so he wouldn’t feel left out.

While Flint’s association with UCP is  only just a recent development her passion is contagious. Her goal is to have  this cause ‘talked about’ – to create awareness through dialogue. Her belief  is purely that everyone regardless of your challenges in life has the right to live an independent and fulfilled life. UCP as an organization is exactly what this is all about, specifically for those who are living with disabilities  including Cerebral Palsy.

The United Cerebral Palsy of New York City is a  leading nonprofit agency that creates many opportunities for people affected  by Cerebral Palsy. There are countless services available from UCP.   Included is affordable housing  particularly in New York City that provides simple things like elevators and  appropriate shower facilities, Education Programs that work with Pre School children and provide After School Programs, Arts Programs and comprehensive  Adult Day Care Facilities. More information about their services, their team  and the wonderful work that they do can all be found on their website:  www.ucpnyc.org

Flint also shared very briefly about another  organization that she hopes to become more involved with – FINCA  International. Natalie Portman is the spokesperson for this organization that  provides small micro finance loans to impoverished women to start their own  businesses all across the world.

This UCP event was also attended by other  VIP guests such as Javier Gomez, Tim Morehouse, Rachael Kun, Camilla Barungi, Aryn Cole, Josh Folan, Max Rhyser, Sean  Biloski and Lauren LoGiudice.

This event is the beginning of a fantastic  journey for Flint, and she looks forward to working with the organization more  in the future. She is a true ambassador for the cause and a gracious host.  Tune in for exclusive interviews which can be  viewed at www.rbrw.org

Flint’s message for the evening was  this:

“Open your eyes and really  put yourself in someone else’s shoes. There is so much that you take for  granted in your day to day life.  So start there.” ~ Jill  Flint
