1st Annual Book Drive
The Foundation held its First Annual Spring Book Drive on May 12, 2004, at The Cutting Room in NYC. The Event was a huge success and we were able to raise nearly 1000 books which were supplied to some of New York City's most needy child development centers in order to update and revitalize the facilities' libraries.

Magic Hands Freddy
On Wednesday, February 4th, Get Together Foundation for the Children hosted a special night of theatre at the SoHo playhouse. This exclusive dress rehearsal of the new Off-Broadway play “MAGIC HANDS FREDDY”, by Arje Shaw (The Gathering) was viewed by more than 160 people who came out in support of the Foundation. This provocative new play, starring Michael Rispoli (of HBO’s "The Sopranos") and Ralph Macchio (The Karate Kid) was enjoyed by all who attended. Following the performance, the cast joined the audience for drinks and snacks (see pictures). More than $2,000 was raised for the foundation.

Fourth Annual Holiday Toy Drive
This past holiday season, Get Together once again teamed up with the Edwin Gould Foundation in sponsoring our 4th Annual Holiday Toy Drive to help provide toys to many deserving, yet underprivileged children in New York City during the holiday season. This year's Toy Drive was held at Pressure, in NYC and managed to collect an inordinate amount of toys in support of our cause. Special thanks to all those in attendance.

Halloween 2003
This past October 31, GTF hosted its second Halloween fund-raiser event to even greater success than the first.
