Children of Chernobyl’s Purim Masquerade Ball

Chabad’s Children of Chernobyl’s New Leadership Committee officially launched the CCOC New Leadership Division on Saturday Night, March 7th, with the biggest Purim Masquerade Ball in town!

Over 750 young professionals gathered at M2 Ultra Lounge to celebrate the Purim holiday and the arrival of the 84th CCOC rescue mission! The celebration was topped off by an open bar sponsored by Maker’s Mark, Lucid, Wingard USA, and Blue Moon.

The cast from MTV’s The College Humor Show hosted the evening, DJ Omi electrified the club all night long, and 12 young men and women donated themselves to charity for the first ever CCOC Date Auction! The New Leadership Committee, comprised of 30 young philanthropists, raised over $50,000 for CCOC.

CCOC is the only organization in the world to permanently evacuate and treat sick children from the Chernobyl region. To date, CCOC has saved the lives of 2,596 children from the devastated region of Chernobyl. For more information, please visit www.ccoc.net or email Rachel@ccoc.net
