RIVERPARK - PHILIP'S FUND GALA
NEW YORK, NY
The Philip Begonja Memorial Foundation's 5th Annual Gala Dinner raised money to support their mission of awarding educational grants and scholarships to deserving young people requiring financial assistance. Guests enjoyed Taittinger Champagne, Calvisius Caviar and jamón Ibérico de bellota during the cocktail reception while bidding for exclusive silent auction items including some serious cookware. While dining, guests heard heartfelt speeches from Vice President Antonio Begonja and scholarship recipients before President Anthony Rudolf took the podium to start the live auction. From an exclusive Urbani Truffle-filled trip to Italy to a home cooked meal by Chef George Mendez, guests couldn't get their bids in fast enough! The night was a success, raising money to help carry on Philip’s passion for life, sharing and laughter through the Foundation.
