Children's Aid Benefit 2019


Join us on November 7 at the Ziegfield Ballroom for Children’s Aid’s most celebrated night of the year when more than 500 generous industry leaders, community luminaries, and cherished friends and supporters band together for our showcase event.

Following a spectacular evening of cocktails, the dinner program at our 9th annual Children’s Aid Benefit will proudly feature Children's Aid President and CEO Phoebe Boyer and youth who benefit from the organization’s cradle-through-college continuum of services. These programs are designed to help young people learn, grow, and lead as they step into the world and realize their unlimited potential. The event is expected to raise more than $2 million to support these life-changing programs.

We are pleased to honor Jose L. Tavarez, New York Tri-State Division Executive, Bank of America Private Bank, whose accomplishments include prestigious awards from The Council of Urban Professionals, Alianza Dominicana, Latino Trendsetter Magazine, Hispanic Business Magazine and New Heights Youth, Inc. Mr. Tavarez’ philanthropy exemplifies Children’s Aid values, and we are thrilled to recognize his contribution to ensuring that all young people have the opportunity to realize their fullest potential.
