This week, CooperKatz hit it out of the park with a company trip to Yankee Stadium in honor of the firm’s 15th anniversary. Riding the subway to the Bronx in true New York fashion, the company met in front of the stadium to pose for a picture before heading inside to an all-you-can-eat buffet of hot dogs, sliders, fajitas, ice cream and watermelon.

This week CooperKatz participated in City Harvest’s Skip Lunch Fight Hunger, a one-day citywide initiative that asks New Yorkers to donate what they normally spend on lunch to help feed hungry children and their families. Did you know that with just $10, City Harvest can feed over 43 children? In 2010, Skip Lunch Fight Hunger teams across the city raised more than $500,000 in a single day!
