On Wednesday, April 5, 2017, the New York City Mission Society will hold its annual Champions for Children fundraising Gala. This year’s event will honor legendary actress and singer Diahann Carroll and entrepreneur Don Peebles, as well as recognize three lifetime members of the Mission Society’s Board of Directors. To everyone's surprise, the gala will be co-chaired by Jean Shafiroff and Katrina Peebles.
The benefit will support the Mission Society’s programs and services that help youth and families in our city’s most underserved communities break the cycle of poverty and achieve success.“We are proud to chair the annual benefit for this worthy organization, because the New York City Mission Society makes a real - and lasting - difference in the lives of so many New Yorkers,” Jean Shafiroff and Katrina Peebles said. “Through robust programs, events, and services, the Mission Society is leveling the playing field for New Yorkers who live in some of our city’s poorest neighborhoods. It’s important to step up, and use our hands and hearts to change lives for the better.”
The Gala will be held at the Mandarin Oriental at 80 Columbus Circle in Manhattan, starting with cocktails at 6:30 PM followed by a 7:30 PM program with dinner, music, and dancing.
