Restore Freedom Gala 2013

Thank you for joining us for an evening celebrating lives restored! This year’s Freedom Gala was a sold-out event at City Winery and featured anti-trafficking heroes like Brian Gander of the FBI, Executive Director Jimmy Lee, and star supporters Katie Martinez, Jubi Williams and Yvonne Chen. Musical guests were the amazing and talented women from Au Revoir Simone.

Special thanks to our host committee, whose generosity made the evening possible.

Restore Freedom Gala 2012

This year’s Freedom Gala celebrated Restore NYC’s accomplishments in the fight against modern-day slavery in New York City and raised crucial funds for our holistic, long-term care for international survivors of sex trafficking. The sold-out Freedom Gala at City Winery included an exclusive silent auction and raffle, a video featuring client testimonies and updates from new Restore Executive Director Jimmy Lee. Musical guests were Paula Cole, Ashley Arrison and Amy Lee of Evanescence, who sang the song “My Heart is Broken,” which is inspired in part by the female survivors at Restore.

Restore 2012

On December 31, 2011, nearly 400 Restore NYC supporters gathered together to celebrate hope and renewal at Restore 2012, our 5th New Year’s Eve Benefit. The event raised critical funds for Restore’s aftercare and safehouse programs. Thank you to all those who bought tickets, donated for the iPad giveaway, or supported the event in other capacities.

Restore Freedom Gala 2011

Restore NYC held its 2nd annual Freedom Gala at the historic Angel Orensanz Gallery in the Lower East Side of Manhattan on March 24, 2011. Emceed by National Book Award finalist Patricia McCormick, author of the novel Sold, the event was an animated night featuring live entertainment by the Brooklyn band Zach Williams and the Bellow and dancer Jennifer Jones. Accentuating the gallery’s stunning space was the display of art from local artists Jordan Matter Photography, Suzanne Unrein and Stephanie A. Lindquist.

The generosity of over 550 people in attendance helped us raise more than $130,000 in donations, including ticket sales, silent auction purchases and pledges. These funds give the women we serve access to new lives independent from the criminal networks of traffickers that brought them to New York City.
