For 30 years, 100% of the proceeds from NYJTL’s Leadership Luncheon have directly supported NYJTL programs, thanks to the generosity of the Beneson family, who have underwritten all expenses for NYJTL’s major annual fundraiser. The event is held at the Grand Hyatt in midtown Manhattan.

Summer Gala at The Boathouse
NYJTL held its annual Summer Gala at The Boathouse, a festive celebration featuring music, dancing, dining, gondola rides, and magicians, in Central Park on Wednesday, August 3. The Loeb Boathouse is the iconic setting for the Gala each year.  The event annually attracts 500 attendees from the New York City community, raising funds to support NYJTL’s programs and made a difference in the lives of children across all five boroughs. In 2015, $175,000 was raised; in 2016, the number swelled to XXXX, with a   record $XXXX raised as a result of the silent auction. We look forward to our 2017 Gala date – check back soon for the announcement!
