Do the Wright Thing

Do the Wright Thing Gala David Wright Foundation

The third annual “Do the Wright Thing” gala will be held on November 15th at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square, NYC, beginning at 7pm.

This year’s event will include a special musical performance by Benji & Joel Madden of Good Charlotte, and honor Peter Liguori, the Chairman of Entertainment for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

Tickets are $350 per person ($200 of which is tax-deductible) and includes admission, unlimited food and beverage and gift bag. You must be 21 years old to attend.

Yes, the ticket price is steep but the proceeds go to the David Wright Foundation, which does a heckuva lot for people in need — particularly children and those suffering from Multiple Sclerosis.

To learn more about the Foundation, and/or to purchase tickets, visit the David Wright Foundation website.

I’ll be re-posting this again as we get closer to the big day.
