Figure Skating in Harlem (FSH) honored legendary actress and activist Cicely Tyson and Olympic Gold Medalists Meryl Davis & Charlie White at its 11th Annual Skating with the Stars Gala Monday, April 11, 2016. Celebrating Figure Skating in Harlem’s one-of-a-kind education, health, and leadership programs for underserved girls, guests enjoyed the rare opportunity to dance and mingle with some of the country’s figure skating royalty including Michelle Kwan, Evan Lysacek, Sasha Cohen, Tanith White & Ben Agosto, Tim Goebel, JoJo Starbuck, and 2016 World silver medialists/2016 National Champions Maia & Alex Shibutani, 2016 World silver medalist (and 3-time US National Champion) Ashley Wagner,  and 2016 National Champion Adam Rippon.  The event raised approximately $850,000 for the organization.


The Today Show's Tamron Hall presented the award to Meryl Davis & Charlie White, who are part of the team bringing the Figure Skating in Harlem concept to their hometown of Detroit, MI. Davis was reduced to tears during her speech due to her passion and love for the program. Fashion designer B Michael presented the award to Cicely Tyson, who delivered an impassioned and powerful speech before receiving a stunning piece of artwork created by Keisha Williams as commissioned by FSH.  The Dance Theatre of Harlem  performed a stunning routine in tribute to the honorees.  Macy's Inc. Chairman & CEO Terry Lundgren along with wife Tina, a world figure skating judge and Vice Chair of Figure Skating in Harlem's board, surprised four  graduating seniors with $2,500 scholarships towards college.


Notable guests included: Barry & Marla Malcolm Beck, Louise Camuto, Sasha Cohen, Kenneth & Maria Cuomo Cole, Meryl Davis & Charlie White, Susan Fales-Hill, Tim Goebel, Agnes Gund, Tamron Hall, John Idol, Andrea Joyce, Michelle Kwan, Congresswoman Nita Lowey, Terry and Tina Lundgren, Evan Lysacek, B Michael, Courtney Reagan, Adam Rippon, Marcus Samuelsson & Maya Haile, Ryan Serhant, Maia & Alex Shibutani, Valerie Simpson, JoJo Starbuck, Stacey Tisdale, Tamara Tunie, Jeff Tweedy, Cicely Tyson, Daniella Vitale, Ashley Wagner,Wendy Walker, Vera Wang, Tanith White & Ben Agosto, and Mary Wilson.


Tracie and Scott Hamilton and Michelle Kwan were this year’s Honorary Chairs; Ellen Lowey, Tina and Terry Lundgren, and Diana L. Taylor were among the Gala Chairs. Mary Wilson of The Supremes served  once again as the fabulous host  of the event.


Now in its 19th year, Figure Skating in Harlem remains the first and only organization in the country that combines the power of education with the grace and discipline of figure skating to transform the lives of underserved girls. Through its unique programming, FSH provides NYC girls with innovative skating and education programs that promote academic success, physical health, and emotional well-being. Recent graduates of the program have gone on to Brown University, Boston College, Howard University and others.  The proceeds from this year’s gala will help fuel a plan for expansion beyond New York; with the help of Davis and White, FSH's expansion to Detroit, Michigan, is currently underway.
