2017 Gala Journal

Our 2017 Gala raises funds for more than 11 programs – in-school, after-school and in summer sports scholarships.

The generous support of Sophie Gerson Healthy Youth (SGHY) sponsors and friends brings¬†opportunities in sports, dance, outdoor nature, hands-on science, and summer camp to public middle schools in low income communities where students lack those opportunities. ¬†We are most grateful for this year’s participation from benefactors throughout the City.
