On November 7, RockCreek continued its longstanding support for 100 Women in Finance, whose New York gala and other events raised more than $1.9 million for Horizons National. The gala, for which Brian, Allison and Doug Williams were masters of ceremony, featured auctions of celebrity activities and events. A lunch with Brian Williams and presidential historians Michael Beschloss (Presidents of War) and author Jon Meacham (The Soul of America) went for more than $20,000, and was surpassed only by tickets to Bruce Springsteen’s sold-out Broadway show.
100 Women in Finance champions women in “advancing their careers through education, giving back through philanthropy, and leveraging relationships through peer engagement.” Horizons National empowers children in low-income families through education, life skills, and inspiration. RockCreek is proud to support 100 Women in Finance, Horizons National, and other not-for-profit organizations that promote education, health, and gender equality.
