Circle of Friends Annual Dinner & After Party

What a magical evening!

Thank you for making our annual Circle of Friends Dinner and After Party on April 26 such a huge success! It was a beautiful night, and together we raised $450,000 (that’s after expenses — $600,000 gross). But the evening was much more than a fundraiser — it was a chance for our supporters to gather and celebrate all we’ve accomplished together this past year. We can’t thank you enough.

We were proud to honor Macquarie Group with our Corporate Award and the Miner family — Lee, Pam, Julie, and Charlie — with our Legacy of Service Award. See all of the photos from the evening.

If you were inspired by the stories of the children and volunteers at the dinner, we hope you’ll get involved. You can:

  • Volunteer (host a corporate game night, be a mentor, or teach a skill, etc.)
  • Visit one of our sites (we have locations in Harlem, Bronx, Queens, and Dobbs Ferry)
  • Join our mailing list
