In May 2010, the Foundation’s Young Professionals Committee hosted the Second Annual Refi Rock Spring Fling, a fun-filled evening at the Central Park Zoo.
More than 1,500 young professionals from throughout the tri-state area attended the event, which raised funds benefiting BEF’s Team Boomer and other programs supporting the cystic fibrosis community. The night included a tour of the rain forest, sea lion demonstrations, and polar bear and penguin exhibits that entertained the crowd.
In keeping with the Refi Rock tradition, the Spring Fling brought together bands from a host of Wall Street firms, including headliner Rubix Kube. Partygoers also were treated to a guest appearance on the red carpet by African tribal band Magbana. Raffle prizes included airline tickets to Europe, Yankees and Mets tickets, autographed sports memorabilia and restaurant gift certificates.
