We are delighted to invite you to join us on Thursday, April 4 for Friends of the Children New York's An Evening with Friends Gala: Sparking Change at the Grand Hyatt Ballroom in Manhattan.

Friends of the Children New York is breaking the cycle of generational poverty. We do this by providing the most vulnerable children with salaried, professional mentors (Friends) who stay with youth in our program from kindergarten through high school graduation - 12-1/2 years, no matter what. This year we will empower 172 young people from Harlem and the South Bronx, helping them on their journeys to learn goal-setting, self-determination, perseverance, and more.

Friends of the Children NY is a 501(c)3 and gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. If you would like to send a check or wire transfer, please contact Maddie Legg at maddie@wingo.nyc
