Happy Hour for Hope-

Donate to Families Together NY


The New York State Public Health Association, New York State Association of County Health Officials, New York State Association for Rural Health and the NYS Conference on Environmental Health Directors partnered up with Families Together at the NYS Public Health Partnership Conference!

Based on the concept used by Andrew Bennett in his entrepreneurship H3: Happy Hour for Hope, our happy hour features a special guest (Andrew Bennett himself) and fun interactions. Atendees can make donations by buying "drinks". Of course not real drinks; your "drink" purchase is your donation and one hundred percent of the income goes directly to this years donee.
