The Blackstone Group, led by captains Erik Lisher and Jacob Werner, raised an astonishing $133,000 with 64 team members—making them our 2011 Top Fundraising Team. Blackstone and their team members were honored at inMotion's Commitment to Justice award ceremony on February 9, 2012 at Lincoln Center.
In turn, Jacob Werner led the way as the Top Individual Fundraiser, raising $43,850 on his own and truly inspiring his teammates and others.
Not counted in this total, and every bit as valuable, was the incredible in-kind support provided by Blackstone under the direction of 1411 Broadway's building management: Adam Goldberg, Mary Pietropolo and Neal Troiano.
For her tenacity as the Top Female Fundraiser, we also have to single out Norma Moriarty. Her $18,000 in donations was also inspiring. In addition, among the female fundraisers, she received the highest number of donations.
