THE STORY:

Sasha Tailor wrote -

To start off the holiday season, we are hosting a Happy Hour Fundraiser at The Ainsworth Chelsea on Tuesday, November 10th 2015 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm to benefit the UN Refugee Agency. We are asking for a minimum donation of $15 online, $20 at the door.

If you are unable to attend, we hope that you will still consider donating to help us reach our fundraising goals.

There are currently more than 50 million refugees and displaced people in the world– the largest number since WWII. 

Families are fleeing fighting and destruction in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan and are risking perilous journeys by sea, hoping to find safety in Europe. Many have suffered severe trauma to get there and many of those fleeing across the Mediterranean are women and children. 

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is the world’s leading organization aiding and protecting people forced to flee their homes due to violence, conflict and persecution. Supporting UNHCR and its partners will help to provide life-saving essentials including shelter, water, food, safety and protection. 


The Ainsworth is graciously providing us an extended happy hour, including:

  • Half price wine
  • $5 draft beer
  • $8 well drinks

The more the merrier - please bring friends! Let's start this season on the right foot and celebrate together while giving back to an important cause!
