A New York Winter's Eve

The annual winter gala, A New York Winter's Eve, is Volunteers of America-Greater New York's largest and most important fundraising event of the year. On Tuesday December 5, 2017 at The Plaza, guests gathered to celebrate the Spirit of the Founders Honoree Deloitte for their steadfast partnership and philanthropic commitment to our programs. The inspiring evening featured a reception, dinner, and an exciting silent and live auction. We were thrilled to welcome back Today Show and Morning Joe co-host Willie Geist as the Master of Ceremonies for the third year. Funds raised from the gala will benefit the more than 90 social service programs run by Volunteers of America-Greater New York that impact the lives of the most vulnerable individuals, families, and children in our community. Revisit the evening by viewing our full photo gallery.
