AMS 28th Anniversary Fundraising Event


Here we are coming out again to raise fund for Haiti, 4 years after the monstrous earthquake devastated the motherland. Our goal is to raise $100,000.00 and continue helping the earthquake victims, build clinics in different parts of the country and support the long-lasting, educational activities of AMS in New York. Many of you attended our event last year as we celebrated our honorees of the first ten (10) years. The event turned out to be a huge success--A true social gathering whereby old friends met and rejoiced; a real networking avenue that facilitated new acquaintances of many different ethnic origins. That fundraising, besides helping AMS in pursuing its vision, has also allowed us to fulfill the new endeavor of sending children to school. Children who otherwise would not have been able to obtain or continue an education in the country’s reality. In this context, we are calling upon you to gather with us and foster the “Night of Volunteers!”

The Aesclepius Medical Society’s (AMS) 28th Anniversary Gala will be held on Saturday, February 22, 2014, from 9:00 PM to 2:00 AM, at Leonard’s La Dolce Vita. 555 Northern Blvd, Great Neck, New York. This is the customary date and place where AMS holds the function in order to provide excellent comfort to our guests.

In essence, a gala of this sort, to date, has been AMS’ principal way to raise funds; however, we have also been seeking other funding opportunities and appealing to you to take that road with us as well. So many have already selflessly walked for Haiti time and again; so many have also faithfully stood with AMS directly or indirectly. As such, in humility and gratitude, we stand to honor on this occasion three distinguished individuals (Names will be posted soon.) 

It is worthwhile to come and help acknowledge these individuals who have served us all with kindness. It is equally valuable to come celebrate with the volunteers who have helped Haiti from February 2010 and beyond. With your assistance and contribution, we will continue to improve life in Haiti, one person, one day at a time. In other words, you will serve as an AMS supporter and maybe a believer in that whatever of good will that you have wished to execute for Haiti, but could not accomplish on your own, you can achieve it all via AMS, a vehicle in motion for change.

We take this opportunity to thank all those who have either participated at our  fundraising events or donated toward our clinical activities. It goes without saying that without your help, we could only have dreamt of attempting to achieve certain goals. We remain grateful for that level of support that you have selflessly provided time and again. AMS is a 501(c)3 is a not-for-profit organization with 28 years of community service in New York and Haiti.
