$175,000 Raised at the Lucosky Brookman Foundation’s Charity Casino Night and Poker Tournament benefitting International Humanitarian Project
Lucosky Brookman LLP (“Lucosky Brookman” or the “Firm”) (www.lucbro.com), a leading corporate finance and securities law firm, announced today that, together with its friends at Spartan Capital Securities LLC (“Spartan”) (www.spartancapital.com) and TCA Capital (“TCA”) (www.tcaglobalfund.com), it raised approximately $175,000 for The Save A Child's Heart Foundation (“SACH”) (www.saveachildsheart.org) during the Firm’s fourth annual charity event held on October 3, 2017 at Capitale in New York City. Since 2014, with the help of its clients, friends and colleagues, Lucosky Brookman has raised over $675,000 for charity.
Lucosky Brookman, Spartan and TCA thank all of their friends, clients and colleagues whom have generously made donations and sponsored the event. Approximately 300 people attended this year’s Casino Night and Poker Tournament. The event featured over 100 players in the Texas “Holdem-4-Hearts” tournament. The net proceeds will allow five children from developing countries to receive much-needed life-saving pediatric heart surgery and post-operative care.
SACH is an international humanitarian project whose mission is to improve the quality of pediatric cardiac care for children from developing countries whom suffer from congenital and rheumatic heart disease. The Lucosky Brookman Foundation has adopted SACH as its charity of choice because of SACH’s mission and immediate impact on children around the world.
Since 1995, SACH has treated thousands of children suffering from congenital and rheumatic heart disease aging from infancy to 18 years of age. SACH has helped children in over 50 countries, including Africa, South America, Europe, Asia and throughout the Middle East, where adequate medical care is unavailable.
Joseph Lucosky, Managing Partner of Lucosky Brookman, states, “We are humbled by the generous donations of our clients and friends. Each year, the Firm’s charity event gets better and better, supported by the philanthropy of like-minded individuals. As a father of four children myself, I am honored to be a part of such a worthwhile cause which provides a direct impact on families and communities around the world.”
Seth Brookman, Partner of Lucosky Brookman, likewise commented, “SACH is not only saving lives around the world, but also building bridges. The Lucosky Brookman Foundation was honored to be a part of this special night to help raise money for such a deserving cause.”
David Litwack, Executive Director of Save A Child's Heart, U.S., remarked, “Raising $175,000 is truly amazing. This donation enables us to save the lives of five children. On behalf of the entire SACH organization, I wish to extend my heartfelt appreciation to Lucosky Brookman, Spartan, TCA, and their clients, friends and colleagues for their extraordinary philanthropy and commitment.”
