This year’s event, held at the Sheraton New York, raised $1.7 million and will be used to fund a range of charitable, education and research programs. During the past year, NACDS has contributed to groups such as America’s Promise, Boy Scouts of American, Boys and Girls Clubs, the National Breast Cancer Coalition and the Parkinson’s Action Network.
