Attend "An Evening Of Music"

An Evening of Music at the Morgan Library & Museum

Presented by Springbrook parents and world-renowned musicians Carmit Zori & Robert Rinehart in support of
the Family Engagement Center at Springbrook.2018.Morgan.FlipCauseThumb_250x250.pngThis beautiful celebration of compassion, commitment, and generosity focuses on music’s power to transform lives! Join us for a concert unlike any other. In addition to the awe-inspiring music, attendees will have the opportunity to hear motivating stories from Springbrook families, friends, and donors while enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres—all in New York City’s breathtaking landmark, The Morgan Library & Museum.

Proceeds from last year’s An Evening of Music were instrumental in enhancing Springbrook’s Family Engagement Center, a resource to support families through the admissions process while providing a nurturing space for them to spend quality time and create new memories. This year proceeds from the event will benefit Springbrook's lifelong programs for adults with developmental disabilities.
