McCarton Foundation gears up for Celebration of Learning Gala at Cipriani Wall Street

Get ready for the McCarton Foundaion’s Ninth Annual Celebration of Learning gala, which will take place at Cipriani Wall Street. The event will take place on Monday, May 17, 2010 at Cipriani Wall Street located at 55 Wall Street in New York City.

Chris Hansen of Dateline, NBC will be in attendance and in full effect. However he won’t be busting anyone at this party. The renowned television journalist and author will be hosting this gala. There will be a VIP reception at 6 p.m. to get you feeling as important as ever, as well as cocktail reception following. Later on in the evening at 9 p.m. there will be a live auction, so get ready to yell out some numbers. The gala will feature performances from stars such as songstress Talina and comedian Mario Cantone. So there is a good chance your hands may hurt from all of the clapping, and you’ll certainly bust a gut or two from laughter.

The McCarton Foundation is committed to the education of children with developmental disabilities such as autism. This year the foundation will be honoring Shawn A. Rubin, distinguished Managing Director, Wealth Management of the Abacus Group-Morgan Stanley Smith Barney.
