Keeping the Promise Benefit 2018

The tradition continues on October 18 at the Ziegfeld Ballroom. Now in its eighth year, the Keeping the Promise Benefit is the showcase event for Children’s Aid, attracting hundreds of industry leaders and philanthropists for a spectacular evening of cocktails, dinner, and entertainment.

More than 500 friends and supporters will gather to celebrate another year of ensuring that all young people have the opportunity to realize their fullest potential—and commit to strengthening the Children’s Aid mission for future generations.

The program will feature Children's Aid President and CEO Phoebe C. 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 become leaders of their own lives and communities. The event is expected to raise $2 million to support these programs.
