Celebrating Heroes. Unlocking the Future for Children.
On November 6, we will host our 2014 Annual Awards Ceremony to honor six of the bravest people we know: the 2014 Honorees. Join us for an unforgettable evening in one of New York City’s finest venues — 583 Park Avenue — to celebrate their heroic work and change the lives of even more children. Every penny raised will support and advance the work of our Honorees, bringing hope, healing and comfort to some of the world’s most vulnerable children.

Last year, our generous sponsors and guests made a lasting difference in the lives of vulnerable children. Here are just a few ways that their support is bringing hope, healing and comfort to children around the world:
Rescuing Trafficked Girls. Triveni Acharya is using her grant funding to rescue over 1,300 girls from brothels in India and provide the care they need to rebuild their lives.
Helping Children Walk. C. Mead Welles is using his funding to provide prosthetic limbs, orthotic devices and mobility aids to more than 500 children with limb disabilities in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.
Educating Children with Disabilities. Michaela Mycroft is using her funding to buy classroom materials for more than 600 children in her early childhood development program, empowering differently-abled children with the basic skills they need to succeed.
Breaking Down Social Barriers. Sarah Cronk is using her funding to establish 100 school-based cheerleading teams for children with and without disabilities, serving more than 2,000 students.
Saving Abandoned Babies. Susie Krabacher is using her funding to establish the Abandoned Baby Triage Center in Haiti, which will provide water, food, medical care and more to 100 orphaned children every year.
All guests at the Awards Ceremony will have the opportunity to make a donation during dinner and receive one of our signature keys, symbolizing how your generous gift will unlock the future for a child. Last year, talented jeweler Adam Shulman and goldsmith Heidi Nahser Fink designed our beautiful Limited Edition Key Necklace (pictured here).
