Presented by Aon, the 6th Annual Healing on the Fly NYC is an evening in support of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing and the thousands of disabled veterans they serve each year across the United States
Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) is pleased to announce that The 6th Annual Healing on the Fly NYC Gala Dinner and Auction is set to take place at 6:00 pm on October 1, 2019 at The Metropolitan Club. All proceeds from the event will go towards providing the thousands of injured and disabled veterans served by PHWFF with the support they need on their journeys to recovery
The evening also will feature a cocktail hour with silent auction, seated dinner, a short program featuring PHWFF veteran guest speaker Sergeant Lisa Ornelas US Army (ret) – a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan whose healing journey with PHWFF strengthened family bonds and fostered her physical and emotional recovery.
Now in its 6th year, Healing on the Fly NYC has raised over 1.2 million dollars since its inception in 2014 enabling thousands of disabled veterans to benefit from a program recognized as an innovative leader and model in the field of therapeutic outdoor recreation for the disabled.
This lovely annual event is being co-chaired by two great PHWFF supporters and champions: Commissioner of Major League Soccer, Don Garber and Michael Bateman, Senior Vice President for Willis Towers Watson. Thanks to their leadership and presenting sponsor Aon, a very special evening has been planned to raise funds and awareness for this top-tier veteran service program.
For over a decade PHWFF has focused on healing those who serve. It is through the tremendous contributions of supporters and volunteers nationwide that PHWFF served over 8,300 deserving members of our armed services in 2018.
