CareOne Raises $4 Million for Puerto Rico!

CareOne Raises $4 Million for Puerto Rico!

All the stars came out for CareOne‘s “Starry Night Masquerade,” and #HipNJ was there for all the action!

Our Lisa Marie Latino chatted with the A-List stars on the black carpet, including pop singer JoJo, New York Giants Super Bowl Champions Jason Pierre-Paul and Victor Cruz, and CareOne President and CEO Daniel E. Straus and Executive Vice President Elizabeth Straus. Other attendees included various NFL alumni, Danielle Brooks of Orange is the New Black and model Joan Smalls.

This event especially hit home for New Jersey native great Cruz, who is half-Puerto Rican. “Puerto Rico is near and dear to my heart…Anytime you get to raise money for a great cause and for a cause like Puerto Rico and their disaster relief, you can’t ask for a better place to do it and a better organization [than CareOne] to facilitate it.”

CareOne’s event, held at the Skylight Clarkson North in New York City, raised more than $4 million in support of hurricane-relief efforts in Puerto Rico. Prior to “Starry Night Masquerade,” CareOne embarked on an October 11th mission trip to Puerto Rico where staff visited hospitals and spoke with physicians and patients on the ground to evaluate how best to address the immediate needs of the island’s medical community.

The event’s emcee, CNN’s Jason Carroll, was so moved by the outpouring of love from the attendees: “These people here tonight are making an effort to really make a change, and I’m so honored to be a part of it.”

Thanks to the generosity of CareOne’s supporters, the company plans to continue providing help to the citizens of Puerto Rico and are scheduling follow-up trips in the coming weeks and months!

“We have found that each person can make a difference when they come together, and we are going to continue to do so,” proclaimed Elizabeth Straus.
