Come toast the conclusion of another eventful year at our Annual Holiday Party. What better way to celebrate the season than by lifting a glass with journalism colleagues in the back room at Kennedy’s Restaurant and Bar. Tickets include entrance to the back room with a crackling fireplace and our own private bartender serving a cash bar, a delicious all-you-can-eat buffet and a complimentary raffle ticket. (Prizes include Deadline Club goodies.) In the spirit of the season, we’re holding a charitable Silent Auction with valuable prizes donated by the International Center of Photography, Gotham Writers' Workshop and others to benefit the local Hurricane Sandy recovery and relief efforts by the American Red Cross of Greater New York. Many thanks to TD Ameritrade, which has generously agreed to match all of the money that The Deadline Club will raise for the Red Cross, so every dollar spent in the auction will support two dollars of local hurricane recovery efforts.
