Please join Youth INC for our 23rd annual Celebration to Benefit New York Kids, where we will celebrate the culmination of our Celebration Program – a year-long fundraising training program providing grassroots nonprofits with the knowledge, skills, and tools to engage new supporters, raise more funds, and deliver more opportunities to youth. We are excited to work with 12 outstanding nonprofits this year!
At this year’s Celebration to Benefit New York Kids, we are thrilled to honor two outstanding families who through their support of Youth INC have made a lasting impact on New York City children and the organizations that serve them:

Wray Thorn & Melissa Francis and Evan & Amy Wildstein
Our honorees have longstanding relationships with Youth INC as Board Members, moderators, and committee members.  Having introduced their children to our mission through volunteer days, they are truly “Youth INC Families” and so deserving of this award. We hope you will join us at the event.

For additional event information, please contact Angela Chen at
