Members of New York City’s philanthropic, business, civic and 9/11 communities will join forces with Tuesday’s Children at its annual “Roots of Resilience” Gala on Thursday, September 10, 2015 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. Founded in 2001 to promote long-term healing in individuals directly impacted by the events of September 11th, Tuesday’s Children has since expanded to support victims of domestic and international terrorism, as well as families of fallen military service men and women.
Carolyn Rafaelian, Founder and CEO, ALEX AND ANI, and Nicki Maher, SVP of Community Engagement and Partnerships, CHARITY BY DESIGN, will be honored for their unwavering support and ongoing efforts to raise money and awareness for Tuesday’s Children’s much-needed programs and services.
Award-winning rapper, entrepreneur and actor, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, whose artistic talents helped to raise more than $150,000 for Tuesday’s Children’s programs, will be presented with the “Keep the Promise” award for his generous contributions to the organization.
The Gala will be chaired by Fred Strobel, Vice Chair, Tuesday’s Children Board of Directors and Managing Director, U.S. Head of Human Resources at Tradeweb, and Kelly Green Grady, Tuesday’s Children Board of Directors and Chair of the Family Advisory Board.
The evening will offer a cocktail reception, dinner, an auction and dancing. The proceeds will benefit Tuesday’s Children’s wide range of national and international family-focused, resilience-building services.
Tickets start at $500. Numerous sponsorships are available. Please call 212-332-2980 or email Denean@tuesdayschildren.org for more information.
