Annual Gala 2020

In light of the uncertainty surrounding the global spread of the coronavirus, The Child Center of NY is foregoing its April 6 Gala at the Plaza Hotel. 

Please make a 100% tax-deductible gift today to stand with the 35,000 children and families served by The Child Center’s dedicated staff. Their needs continue, even as conditions make it impossible for caring adults like you to come together to celebrate the transformative impact of the Child Center in under-served communities.

Our 2020 honorees—the New York Mets and the Mets Foundation and Adam H. Schwartz of First Manhattan Co. and his wife Nell Shanahan Schwartz—have kindly agreed to be recognized at a March 2021 Annual Gala, along with collaboration partners Northwell Health and New York City Police Foundation.

Thank you! We are grateful for your financial support in these challenging times.


Below please select one of giving levels associated with the Gala, or make a contribution in the amount of your choice.
