➤ Is this a memorial service for Olga Murray?

This year’s Founder’s Day event will be both a celebration of life for our late founder, Olga Murray, and a fundraiser to honor her dearest wish: for her work in Nepal to continue.

Olga was never someone who wanted much fuss over her, whether it was her birthday or any other special occasion. She always preferred to guide this attention towards Nepal’s children and her life’s work at NYF. Before she passed, Olga requested that the NYF Community have an opportunity to come together over drinks and light bites to remember her fondly and celebrate her remarkable life. This Founder’s Day, our team is working to honor her wishes as well as we can.

Our goal is to create a heartfelt event that, while bittersweet, is ultimately a joyful, forward-thinking opportunity for our community to come together, recommitting to Olga’s promise — and what is now our shared promise.
