She will be joined by legendary singer/songwriter Daryl Hall and NBA Champion/Founder of the Trent Tucker Non Profit Foundation Trent Tucker, who are the charity’s “Breakthrough Spirit Award” recipients.
CCBF’s annual benefit gala will be held on Wednesday, October 27th at the Plaza Hotel, and they invite you to join them for cocktails at 6:30 pm and dinner, program, and auction at 7:30 pm.
Daryl Hall will give a special live performance during the evening, and actor Charles Grodin will return as the Master of Ceremonies.
A highlight of the evening is the live auction. Lots range from the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have your child be a Knicks Ball Kid, to a vacation to Bhutan, to a golf package featuring the most exclusive courses in the northeast, Superbowl tickets, and some amazing pieces of art from top contemporary artists.
You can browse the live auction, silent auction (which includes items such as a meet and greet with Ray Romano and tickets to SNL at NBC studios), and works of art and place your bid before the event here.
If you can’t make it, but you still want to offer your support and join in the excitement, you can enter to win a 2011 MINI Cooper Convertible. Each raffle ticket is $500 and only 150 raffles will be sold. Winner need not be present to win.
