One of the participants in the AMNH outing gives his opinion on the quality of the day's events.

In April, ASC participated in the Angel Wish Foundation/Goldman Sachs Community TeamWorks outing at the American Museum of Natural History. This special day featured one-on-one mentoring of the children of ASC clients by Goldman Sachs staff volunteers. This year, 16 children ages 6 to 12 were treated to an all-expense-paid trip to the museum, including lunch and transportation. Highlights of the day included special tours through the Rose Center for Earth and Space, the Dinosaur Hall, and the Butterfly Conservatory.

"This partnership with Angel Wish and Goldman Sachs is so important to ASC," observes ASC Case Manager Antoinette Desrossiers-Jean, who served as one of the chaperones for the outing. "Events like this not only guarantee the children a good time, they provide valuable opportunities for our clients to provide enrichment for their children that might not otherwise be possible."

ASC thanks Angelwish for spearheading this partnership. And we extend our appreciation to the Goldman Sachs Community TeamWorks volunteers who gave their time and energy to ensure that the children's trip to the AMNH was a fun and memorable one.
