2021 Child Center Virtual Gala

Thursday, May 20, 2021


Celebrating the inspiring work of 2020



On the evening of Thursday, May 20, 2021, The Child Center of NY will hold its first-ever virtual Gala. Although it will look different from previous galas, we are looking forward to the opportunity to shine a light on the incredible difference our staff has made in the lives of 40,000 children, families, and their communities, in the toughest circumstances. Our clients faced unimagined hardships this year, and the work of our staff has inspired hope and offered real, tangible support and relief where it is needed most.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, New York State deemed The Child Center’s work essential. Far from closing programs and decreasing services, The Child Center scaled up and broadened the scope of what we do in highly creative and responsive ways that will endure. It is our great honor to dedicate the 2021 Gala to these essential workers: the profoundly skilled and passionate staff of The Child Center of NY, who showed up every day and made it all happen for the clients they serve.

Please join as we pay tribute to these heroes. It will be a heartwarming, interactive celebration filled with unforgettable performances by both Broadway legends and the budding talent of Child Center students; reflections on extraordinary moments of 2020; an inside look at our staff’s incredible work; lots of laughter; and the sense of inspiration and joy that comes from joining together for an important cause. Our supporters are vital partners in our essential work, and we welcome you to be our guest!
