Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty recently helped the Long Island Council of Save the Children mount a tremendously successful fundraiser, which brought in close to $250,000.

Daniel Gale Sotheby’s Deborah Hauser and Abby Sheeline, board members of Save the Children LI Council, co-chaired its spring benefit with the assistance of a Daniel Gale Sotheby’s sponsorship, and a team of volunteers, both from Daniel Gale Sotheby’s and the larger community.

More than 300 supporters of the Save the Children Long Island Council came together at The Paramount in Huntington for “A Night at the Speakeasy,” raising funds through live and silent auction items. Guests were entertained throughout the evening by local bands Sands Point and Run 4 Covers.

“The Daniel Gale Sotheby’s organization rallied around the efforts of Abby and Deb, wholeheartedly lending their support and resources,” said Patricia J. Petersen, president and CEO of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s. “From hands-on volunteerism and generous donations of money and raffle prizes, it was a fabulous team effort.”

Save the Children Long Island Council is a volunteer group committed to supporting the work of the national organization, whose mission is to give children in the United States and around the world a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.
