Lunch with a View
For 22 years we have come together in the Spring for a candid conversation with an author whose work reflects ORT’s mission – to provide the educational tools and resources every student needs to thrive - no matter what. This is our signature annual fundraiser, and we can’t wait to celebrate (this year over mimosas!) ORT’s impact around the world, made possible by YOU.
Thank you to everyone that made our 22nd Annual Lunch With A View a tremendous success. With your support ORT can continue to change lives - propelling students into the brightest possible futures. Support the event and ORT students around the world at ortamerica.org/donate
