Last night, Goodman Media headed downtown to join our friends and clients, Ali and Joe Torre, at the Safe At Home Foundation’s 14th annual gala at Cipriani 25 Broadway. The event, which honored MLB Commissioner Robert Manfred, Jr. and celebrated the 1996 World Series Championship New York Yankees, raised more than $1.5 million to help end the cycle of domestic violence and save lives.
Goodman Media has had the great honor of working with the Foundation since its inception to help raise awareness of its mission. From the beginning, our team has proudly organized and managed all of its red carpets, drawing numerous national and local media to attend and cover the events.
Many celebrities were spotted last night on the red carpet, including Robert Manfred, Jr., Derek Jeter, Hannah Davis, Don Mattingly, David Cone, Willie Randolph, Lorraine Bracco, among many others.
The Safe At Home Foundation was founded in 2002 by Ali and Joe Torre in response to the impact that domestic violence had on Joe Torre and his family. Now in its second decade of educating students that are most profoundly affected by domestic violence, Safe At Home helps thousands of young people every year. Named in honor of Joe’s mother, the Margaret’s Place program provides a “safe room” in schools staffed by a full- time, master’s-level counselor who provides both individual and group counseling sessions. The Safe At Home Foundation has reached more than 59,500 children and provided more than 26,000 counseling sessions to date.
