Annual Charity Gala

MAY 11, 2023

EL CARIBE — BROOKLYN, NY

The Community Mayors for Special Children’s Annual Charity Ball is our major source of fundraising. At the same time, it gives us an opportunity to pay tribute and honor those who have given their time and financial support. Each year four honorees are chosen to be the recipient of the Community Mayors’ Humanitarian Award.
