The New Yorkers for Children organization is a remarkable non-profit committed to improving the lives of children through opportunities, education, guidance and support. This foundation works very closely with the Administration for Children’s services to improve the lives and futures of children in the welfare system. They have a special interest in the young children of foster care and work with over 1,000 members of the foster care community.
On Thursday, September 15th, Cipriani’s on 42nd street hosted this year’s Annual New Yorkers for Children Fall Gala. Many of New York’s elite A-Listers came out dressed to impress and ready to support and celebrate this charity that helps so many. Standing alongside the city’s most influential people, designers and models were the extraordinary men and women whose lives have been transformed from by this charity. Guests also included Dan Rothmann, Alexia and David Leuschen, Trey Songz, Anita Hodos, Eniko Mihalik, Jodie Snyder Morel, among others.
This year’s event raised over $1.3 million, all of which will go to sustaining the programs that have led to the success of so many children that have gone through this program. These programs promote a committed and stable adulthood through sustainable relationships and compassionate mentors. Signature programs helped by the generous contributions include the Back-to School Package Program, the Guardian Scholars Program, the Youth Advisory Board and Futures in Motion Youth Program: Youth Can! Program.
