It was the place to be on March 16th!

Over 350 attendees gathered to honor Glen Weiss, Executive Vice President of Vornado Realty Trust, David Fanning, Principal of A. Philip Randolph Campus High School, and three of CAW’s outstanding Youth Apprentices, Ashanti Albert, Akmaral Ulanova, and Justin Leo Rivera. The event took place in the atrium at 787 Seventh Avenue, where artwork created by CAW’s Public Art Youth Employment program is permanently installed alongside Lichtenstein’s “Mural with Blue Brushstroke.”

…these kids fall in love with the art, they fall in love with the learning and, along with that, they gain fulfillment by doing something on their own and finding a sense of accomplishment within themselves, which is a wonderful thing to see, and when you speak to them, you really get it.

The Annual Benefit for Kids is Creative Art Works’ most important fundraiser of the year. All sponsors are featured in our benefit journal, which serves as our annual report throughout the year. Sponsors are also recognized in e-mailed newsletters and on CAW’s Facebook page and website, collectively reaching thousands in the business, commercial real estate, art and government sectors. 

96% of funds raised from the benefit go directly to the operation of CAW programs, rather than the cost of the event.

It's Not Too Late to Contribute!

We raised over $750,000 to support transformative creative youth development throughout the year. Your 100% tax-deductible contribution will help us bring more vital programming to more NYC kids.
