At the 2013 Annual Benefit for Forestdale, Inc., held on April 16 at New York Public Radio’s Jerome L. Greene Performance Space, Frazer was pleased to present Forestdale’s President, Anstiss Agnew, with a substantial financial donation on behalf of his bank and to deliver a short speech affirming the importance of Forestdale’s mission as well as his longstanding personal commitment to New York’s neediest children. Speaking to approximately 150 attendees (including many notable public figures), Frazer thanked Ms. Agnew for her important work and rallied the crowd to “dig deep” so that Forestdale can continue developing innovative new programs in areas ranging from “fatherhood education” to college readiness assistance.
Forestdale partners with schools, religious organizations, business owners and other community leaders to address the underlying causes of families in crisis. The organization’s unique three-acre campus includes open fields, a basketball court and a brand new playground where families and children can connect in a fun and peaceful setting. Every program at Forestdale is designed to strengthen families and ultimately reduce the need for foster care. For more information or to donate online, please visit: http://forestdaleinc.org/about/
