New Yorkers host Fang-tastic Fundraiser

Supporters of the Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome Network braved a snow storm to attend the Fang-tastic Night fundraiser in Manhattan on Oct. 29th and raised more than $2,000.



The event, held at Fagolini’s Restaurant, featured a dinner, open bar and raffle prizes including items such as handmade quilts, quilts from Urban Outfiters, AMC movie tickets, and year-long theater passes to the Symphony Space.


Donna Appell gave a short presentation about Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome and the work of the Network. Ashley Appell and Mervin Hernandez performed two songs for the assembled crowd.


A special thanks to the event’s organizing committee and volunteers including:


Fran Moore


Brenda Lopez


Lisa Koss


Diana Rodriguez
