New York, NY (June 8, 2016) – Last night the NYC children’s healthcare nonprofit Children’s Health Fund hosted their Annual Benefit at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. It was a spirited evening in support of America’s underserved youth with luminaries from the worlds of entertainment and politics in attendance among a packed room of hundreds overlooking the skyline around Columbus Circle.

Among the list of honorary chairs and attendees included:

  • Musician, actor and legendary celebrity advocate Harry Belafonte
  • Mayor Bill de Blasio and former Mayor David Dinkins
  • Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman delivered heartfelt remarks detailing Belafonte’s illustrious career before presenting him with Children’s Health Fund’s Humanitarian Award. The audience was treated to footage of Belafonte and a host of celebs singing “We Are the World” before the night’s honoree described his meeting CHF co-founder and president Dr. Irwin Redlener through the USA for Africa campaign. Belafonte explained, “We had to reach out to other segments of this society to guide us in this effort,” and he described the evening as “an extension of the experiences” he had with Dr. Redlener in the 1980s.

Mayor Bill de Blasio stopped by to offer his support as well, quipping he wished a gossip columnist was in the room because he was speaking next to “the coolest table in New York” – seating Morgan Freeman, Belafonte and former Mayor David Dinkins, who also offered warm remarks on stage.



About Children’s Health Fund

Paul Simon and Irwin Redlener, MD founded Children's Health Fund in 1987 after touring the Martinique Hotel, a shelter for homeless families in New York City, and witnessing the conditions under which homeless children lived. The New York Children's Health Project launched with one "big blue bus," a state-of-the-art mobile medical clinic that would bring care directly to those children with the least access.

Over the years, Children's Health Fund has replicated this approach across the country. Today, the National Network provides care through 25 innovative pediatric care programs and affiliates that serve children in poor rural and urban communities across the country. Each program is affiliated with a major teaching hospital or community health center, and reaches out to children in federally designated health professional shortage areas. This network has cared for over 350,000 children in some of the most disadvantaged rural and urban communities in the nation.

 Children's Health Fund has also campaigned in support of expanding health insurance coverage for low-income children, as well as public health programs that provide a critical safety net for millions of medically underserved children. Children's Health Fund has worked in partnership with the White House and Congress to promote access to health care and solutions for homelessness, asthma, poor nutrition and obesity. In 1994, Children's Health Fund launched Kids First, Kids Now!, a public education and advocacy campaign that focused national attention on the need for a true health care safety net for all of America’s children. Kids First, Kids Now! played a key role in the national advocacy effort that resulted in the passage of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, the most important advance in child health care access since the inception of Medicaid in 1965.
