Organizers in the real estate industry hope to raise more than $15,000 next month and top last year’s fundraising effort at the annual Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation Gala.

Monte Carlo Night will be the theme of the event hosted by the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors (HGAR) from 6 to 10 p.m. Sept. 15 at Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle. 

Tickets are $125 per person and the proceeds will benefit area charities and nonprofit organizations throughout the lower Hudson Valley, according to HGAR.

Event sponsorships are also available at the following levels: platinum, $7,500; gold, $5,000; silver, $2,500, and bronze, $1,000.

Linda Crispinelli, president of the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation board of trustees, said the nonprofit hopes to exceed the more than $15,000 raised at last year’s gala.

“As Realtors, it’s so important for us to give back to the communities where we make our living,” said Crispinelli, an associate broker at Houlihan Lawrence.  “Our goal is to strengthen the foundations of these communities and continue to support those living there who may be in need.”

Established in 2003 and relaunched in 2013, the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation supports charities and nonprofit organizations that serve Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange, and Bronx counties.  Its supported charities include Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley, Habitat for Humanity and the Food Bank for Westchester.
