First-Ever Save the Children Young Patrons Gala Set for May 18

NYC Event to Benefit Organization’s Refugee Education Fund

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (April 25, 2018) – The first-ever Save the Children Young Patrons Gala, a black tie gathering of New York's young professionals and philanthropists to raise awareness and funds for the global humanitarian organization’s Return to Learning Fund for refugee children, will be held on Friday, May 18 from 8:00 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. at the Central Park Zoo in New York City.

At least 3.5 million refugee children around the world are out of school. Without safe places to learn and grow, these children are missing out on some – if not all – of their education, severely diminishing their future opportunities, and those of their families and communities. Save the Children’s new Return to Learning Fund supports the organization’s efforts to ensure that no refugee child misses out on learning for more than 30 days. This initiative is a pillar of Save the Children’s upcoming 100th anniversary campaign in 2019.

The event will include musical performances by 2%, Agua sol, and Wizzy, a silent auction and special guest speakers, to be announced.

The gala’s committee is comprised of Hayden Arnot, Bobby Arnot, John Bailey, Lily Baker, Lion Creel, Remi Evarts, Will Hayden, Cameron Ross, Janie Warnock, Cecily Waud and Esme Yozell.
