2022 Children's Aid Benefit

Children's Aid Benefit 2022

The Children’s Aid Benefit is an annual celebration of the young people served by our life-changing programs. This year, we will also celebrate the unsung heroes of our work – our staff. They are the ones who have shown up early, stayed up late, innovated in times of struggle, and delivered on the promise of Children’s Aid – every step of the way.

Join us on Thursday, October 20, at the iconic Ziegfeld Ballroom in midtown Manhattan for this special evening of excellence and inspiration.

One hundred percent of the net proceeds support our young people and the programs of Children’s Aid. 

Board Match

In honor of staff, the Children’s Aid Board of Trustees will match all new or increased gifts to this year’s benefit up to $250,000.
