Thank you for attending the 2024 Rose Ball!

In a remarkable display of support, the AHRC Foundation hosted its 73rd Rose Ball at the historic Oheka Castle on Long Island, bringing together nearly 300 attendees for a celebration of mission and purpose. The evening raised $350,000 to support the Long Island Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) community, ensuring access to a wide range of high-quality services and supports.

We remain so very grateful to our two exceptional honorees, Linda Abramson Raff and Tom and Ellen Moore for accepting these awards. Our community is made stronger by the remarkable contributions of each honoree.  Thank you.
