On March 24th, AMPHS held a fundraising event at Crepeaway restaurant. Crepeaway patrons including AMPHS staff attended the event to both celebrate AMPHS’ 2-year anniversary (on March 25, 2012) and to raise funds for the organization’s Community Health Project. Crepeaway is a small french eatery located at the border of the Noho/West Village neighborhoods in Manhattan, across the street from New York University and Washington Square Park. The restaurant specializes in serving crepes which are a very thin pancakes made from flour, milk, eggs, and butter, that are fun to eat, perfect for a light brunch or dinner, and can satisfy a savory or sweet taste bud. As patrons enjoyed delicious savory crepes, such as “Mikey”, “South Beach” and “Big Papa”, and went back to order sweet crepes for dessert, AMPHS raised 30% of profits made on crepe purchases for their Community Health Project.
Sandy Truong, VP, Corporate Development, Head of Fundraising says “We are very happy to have accomplished our fundraising goal. As a former NYU student, I always enjoyed hanging out at Crepeaway and thought this would be a great place to hold a fundraising event and an anniversary celebration for my AMPHS colleagues. The event was a success and everyone enjoyed themselves.”
