Global Family Reunion
Thank You for making this event amazing!
The Global Family Reunion was held on June 6 at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, New York. Created and spearheaded by writer A.J. Jacobs, the event brought together 3,700 people with the message that we are all part of one big family. The Global Family Reunion raised $62,000 for Alzheimer’s research and care.
