To celebrate the Socceroos qualifying for the FIFA 2014 World Cup, great sponsor of the NYC Magpies, The Australian NYC, held a VIP event in conjunction with the New York Red Bulls and Tim Cahill. This even served as a thank you for the continued support for Tim from Australian fans both at home and here in the US.

It is that time of year again – the Lady Pies are showing our support for survivors of violence by punching 1,000 punches at the 2013 Punch-a-Thon to support the Center for Anti-violence Education. On Sunday, June 2nd, we will punch 1,000 punches to represent confidence and empowerment for survivors of violence. Every 100 punches will be dedicated to ending a different form of violence. Last year, the Lady Pies were the top fundraising team for the event, and we’re ready for a repeat.
Please support the Lady Pies team by donating to our team here. No donation is too small!
Like a walk-a-thon, you can sponsor a specific participant or our team to complete 1,000 punches.
