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.

FlipCause Thumbnail.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 new 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. The Center opened on July 20 and will enable more families to visit Springbrook, helping to meet the needs of families like the Rineharts who have entrusted the care of their children to Springbrook’s Golisano Center for Autism.
