THANK YOU TO ALL WHO MADE THE 2018 WINTER RISE AN INCREDIBLE SUCCESS!
We are over the moon after our 2018 HGF Winter Rise. Due to the generosity of our community, supporters, and artists, Higher Ground made its fundraising goal! To all who helped and attended, THANK YOU for supporting the Higher Ground mission and for helping us further promote the cultural richness and creative brilliance of our wonderful Northern Manhattan communities.
IT WAS AN UNIQUE EVENING UPTOWN WITH LIVE HG ARTIST PERFORMANCES IN AN INTIMATE SETTING, GREAT BITES FROM FAVORITE LOCAL EATERIES, A KICKING SANGRIA AND A SILENT AUCTION STOCKED WITH CULTURAL TICKETS, CLASSES AND MORE!
