Robin Hood’s annual gala started in 1988, and since then, it’s become the largest single-night annual fundraising event for a New York-based nonprofit, according to Bloomberg. Since its initiation, the organization has raised over $1.25 billion dollars. The Robin Hood Foundation recently provided over $70 million in funding for Hurricane Sandy relief with their 12-12-12 concert. For more on the organization, visit www.robinhood.org.
