Reflections From a Friend of the Young Leadership Council

Thursday, October 3, 2013

I remember every little detail of that cool and crisp October morning—what I was eating, what I was wearing when my mom broke the news. She had gone in for a routine check-up and the doctor noticed something on her face. She had gone to a specialist a week after her doctor’s appointment without telling anyone—even my father—and my mom was told she had skin cancer.

Young Leaders Host Comedy Night to Benefit CS

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

We seem to have a history of hosting Comedy Night on the rainiest day of the summer. Yet again, on Thursday, June 13, 2013, it was a torrential downpour outside as the Young Leadership Council’s friends and family made their way to Greenwich Village Comedy Club. Fortunately, no amount of rain could stop this crowd. In fact, our friends were looking for tickets to the event up until show time, a true testament to the importance of our mission and the inescapable passion of the YLC. As the lights dimmed and we settled in to enjoy a night of laughs (and a surprise visit by Judah Friedlander!), Gilda Radner crossed all of our minds.
