The cocktail party even ended with a spectacular sunset.

The Safe Horizon volunteers make a big difference. They very often provide a huge hands-on relief in what are often dreadful human situations. The evening’s hostess, Jane Rivkin, a committed Safe Horizon Volunteer who assisted Safe Horizon in providing assistance to victims of 9/11, personally commended Safe Horizon for its ever-present professionalism, sympathy and empathy working with clients.
