SPRING BENEFIT TO PROVIDE SUMMER LEARNING FOR NYC CHILDREN.

Practice Makes Perfect hosts dazzling event to provide summer learning programs

NEW YORK, Apr. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Break out the bubbles; spring is finally here in New York. Wednesday, May 6 promises to provide a much-needed celebration for attendees of the Practice Makes Perfect Spring Fling. More than 200 guests will help raise over $50,000 in funding while drawing attention to summer learning loss among New York City children. Lack of summer education resources accounts for 2/3 of the ninth grade achievement gap. The event, hosted by celebrity chef Gabe Kennedy, will be held at Midtown Loft & Terrace, 267 Fifth Avenue from 7-10 pm.
