This year’s celebration at the historic Lower East Side Manny Cantor Center features an exquisite panorama, live music, literary cocktails, and ecstatic edibles. The evening begins at 6:30 pm with a cocktail hour on The Rooftop at the Manny Cantor Center, followed by a light dinner and evening program in the adjoining event space. In addition to celebrating the important work of the benefit’s 2018 honorees, Urban Word NYC students will illuminate the night with spoken word performances and student achievements. It promises to be an evening to remember and we hope you will join us in celebrating the inspiration of New York City youth and their partnership with Urban Word NYC.
