2014 NIGHT OF OPPORTUNITY GALA
The Opportunity Network held our Seventh Annual “Night of Opportunity” gala at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on Monday, April 7, 2014. The night honored actors Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, 85 Broads’ Business Leader Sallie Krawcheck and Executive Director of the NFL Players Association, DeMaurice Smith.
The evening was a record breaking one for us as more than 700 guests gathered to honor our fantastic students and the business and civic leaders who inspire them, raising over $1.2 million for our programs serving talented, low-income students.
“The biggest factor in my ability to dream big, and know my goals are achievable, has been OppNet,” said student speaker Shatiek Gatlin, who is the first member of his family to graduate high school and who is now a sophomore at Babson College.
Thank you to our honorees, board, friends, supporters, students and staff for making this a truly memorable night.
