Vera House is the Recipient of a $10,000 Donation from Local Businessman Adam Weitsman
Vera House, Inc. received a $10,000 gift from local businessman, Adam Weitsman, on November 18, 2019. The donation resulted from an auction Weitsman conducted offering his personal courtside tickets to the Syracuse Men’s Basketball season-opening game to the highest bidder.
Weitsman organized the auction as part of his commitment to National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October and he was thrilled to forward 100% of the proceeds generated from the Syracuse Men’s Basketball ticket auction to Vera House. In a letter sent to Vera House with the donation check Weitsman wrote, “What your organization provides to the community is truly priceless, and I hope that this donation will help with your mission to end domestic violence, as well as all other forms of abuse. What you and your team do is truly inspiring.”
“We are extremely grateful for this generous donation from Mr. Weitsman,” said Vera House Executive Director Randi Bregman. “He and his wife, Kim, are consistent supporters of our agency and we would not be able to provide the services for those who need it without donors like the Weitsman family. They are excellent stewards and we are thankful to have them as a part of our community.”
