2024 Annual Gala

For more than a century, Volunteers of America-Greater New York has been serving individuals and families in need, becoming one of the largest providers of human services in New York City, Northern New Jersey, and Westchester County. Each year, we touch the lives of more than 30,000 adults and children. 

We hope you will join us at our annual gala to honor CAVU Securities as well as Danielle Mareka, Fashion Model and Philanthropist, and celebrate the progress we are making together as we strive to end homelessness in Greater New York by 2050.

This year’s event promises to be an enchanted evening filled with captivating stories, spellbinding entertainment, and delectable delights. Prepare to be amazed—and overcome by joy and inspiration—as you step into the circus tent…
