New York – The Annual Credico Awards Dinner raised over $35,000 for hospitalized children in need through The Little Saint Nick Foundation.
The amount raised is the largest single night donation in the history of The Little Saint Nick Foundation. “It was a spectacular event, and we’re absolutely elated to receive such a generous donation from Credico and its affiliates.” Said Ray Mohler Sr, Vice Chairman of the board at The Little Saint Nick Foundation
Credico CEO Jesse Young and Founder Antoine Nohra were in attendance to present Little Saint Nick Foundation Founder and Chairman of the Board, Ray Mohler Jr. with a check for $20,000. “we are so very thankful to Jesse and the entire Credico family for not only for their generous donation, but for their belief in who we are and what we do for children.”
Approximately 1,000 attendees came to Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers for the event that featured a Silent Auction that raised an additional $16,000 for the night. That brought the grand total to just under $37,000 for the night… a new Little Saint Nick Foundation Record.
Founded in 2002, by then four-year old Ray Mohler Jr. The Little Saint Nick Foundation empowers kids to help other kids by organizing events to gather toys and cards that are then delivered to hospitalized children. Today, at just 19 years old, Ray leads an organization whose charitable efforts have touched more than a million children over the past 15 years.
Ray now regularly speaks to students at high schools, businesses, and groups.
