New Yorkers For Children Tenth Annual Fall 2009 Gala
New Yorkers For Children hosted their Tenth Annual Fall Gala at Cipriani 42 to benefit youth in foster care in New York City. The evening honored Mary J. Blige, who is the founder of FFAWN with the Nicholas Scoppetta Child Welfare Award. Find out how stars like Blige, Selita Ebanks and Joy Bryant are making a difference in the lives of foster care children.
“I was put in foster care at a young age and children organizations helped my mother raise us,” says top model Selita Ebanks, who is very active with New Yorker’s for Children. “We have to remember that children were not asked to be put in these situations.”
