Thank you to our supporters who joined us for the Beyond the Boroughs National Scholarship Fund’s Sixth Annual NFL Draft Viewing Fundraiser on Thursday, May 8 at The Gallery at the Dream Downtown Hotel in Manhattan. Guests enjoyed a sponsored open-bar and passed appetizers while watching the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft live.

The fundraiser was an opportunity to support Beyond the Boroughs’ mission: providing college scholarships to deserving students with acceptance letters and unmet financial need. Beyond the Boroughs offers scholarships of up to $20,000 per year over four years, that are automatically renewable.
