We have much to be thankful for — the week before Thanksgiving, 1500+ members of New York’s tech community gathered at the State Armory for Raise Cache, a benefit for hackNY organized by Rebecca Zhou and Kane Sarhan.

The event was a tremendous success and over $100,000 was raised for hackNY. The money will be used to continue to federate the next generation of hackers for the New York innovation community.

It was great seeing the outpouring of support from the community and we are extremely thankful to those that contributed and helped make this happen. We got together some former hackNY fellows to say thanks.

We’d like to thank the following for making this happen:
