2016 Wings Over Wall Street
October 7, 2016 - AFA Members, Toni Diamond and Warren Schiffer, became founders of the extraordinary benefit, "Wings Over Wall Street" when Toni was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
They turned their greatest challenge into inspiring work to fight ALS through research funded by the Muscular Dystrophy Association. In 2004 we lost Toni, our flying partner, but her care-giver husband, Warren, continues to work in her memory.
"Wings" brings together the spirit of our work in the skies, the financial contributions of Wall Street and an event that has celebrity appeal to become a multi-million dollar benefit. While Wings has accomplished a great deal by raising millions, none of this would have been possible without the support of Union Members and the generosity of the business community. This year, the benefit is scheduled for October 27, from 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm at the Lighthouse, 61 Chelsea Piers, New York, NY.
