Partnership With Children's Spring Gala Celebrates High School Senior

Annual Fundraiser Nets over $600,000 to Help
Public School Children in Need


New York, NY - (June 16, 2011) Partnership With Children raised over $610,000 at its 2011 Spring Gala held on June 2.  Highlighting Partnership's focus on at-risk youth was an inspiring talk by Brooklyn high-school senior Hortensia Bonilla, who described her journey from near drop-out, to a top student eager to be the first in her family to graduate from high school.

The Gala also honored the philanthropic work of Citigroup Chief Administrative Officer Don Callahan who was presented with the Anne Vanderbilt Award for Achievement.  The Board of Directors of Partnership With Children also recognized long-serving Executive Director Michelle Sidrane with the Leadership Award for her work in vastly increasing the number of school children being helped.  "Our social workers make sure the children in our program are fed, clothed, supported and ready to learn," said Sidrane, "We help their families receive the services they need and which help them get back on their feet."

Dinner co-chairs included Greg Hodges of Verizon, Janet Lewis of Hewlett-Packard, Joe Profeta of EMC and Sarah Steiger of Microsoft.  In support of Partnership's social and emotional learning goals, IBM Corporation served as Grand Benefactor of the event.

The Anne Vanderbilt Award for Achievement is named after the founder and first president of Big Sisters, Inc., which was founded in 1908. Now known as Partnership with Children, the organization strengthens the emotional, social and cognitive skills of at-risk public school children through its Open Heart-Open Mind program which reaches 10,000 students in 22 elementary, middle and high schools across New York City.

Partnership with Children, founded in 1908, provides early intervention, preventative services and counseling to at-risk children and youth. Our teams of professional social workers integrate themselves seamlessly into school communities to provide comprehensive support to those children and families who need it most. Today we reach 10,000 students, as well as their families, teachers, and community through Open Heart-Open Mind, our school based program, Life Steps, our preventative care program for adolescents and the Center for Capacity Building, our professional development and training program. Our mission is to strengthen the emotional, social and cognitive skills of at-risk children so they can succeed in school, in society and in their lives.
