At the 2013 Annual Benefit for Forestdale, Inc., held on April 16 at New York Public Radio’s Jerome L. Greene Performance Space, Frazer was pleased to present Forestdaleâ€™s President, Anstiss Agnew, with a substantial financial donation on behalf of his bank and to deliver a short speech affirming the importance of Forestdaleâ€™s mission as well as his longstanding personal commitment to New Yorkâ€™s neediest children. Speaking to approximately 150 attendees (including many notable public figures), Frazer thanked Ms. Agnew for her important work and rallied the crowd to â€œdig deepâ€ so that Forestdale can continue developing innovative new programs in areas ranging from â€œfatherhood educationâ€ to college readiness assistance.
Forestdale partners with schools, religious organizations, business owners and other community leaders to address the underlying causes of families in crisis. The organizationâ€™s unique three-acre campus includes open fields, a basketball court and a brand new playground where families and children can connect in a fun and peaceful setting. Every program at Forestdale is designed to strengthen families and ultimately reduce the need for foster care. For more information or to donate online, please visit: http://forestdaleinc.org/about/
