The 1199SEIU/Employer Child Care Corporation’s (CCC) 15th Annual Care for Kids Gala was held on December 6, 2022, at Chelsea Piers. The event’s theme was “Our Families. Our Children. Our Future.”
reflecting our mission to provide necessary assistance to families urgently trying to balance their essential work with family life, and our commitment to creating opportunities for every child and family.

The event was chaired by Priscilla Sims Brown, President and CEO of Amalgamated Bank. In addition to hosting distinguished guests and community members, our gala honored Mary Kay Henry, President of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU); Michael Dowling, President of Northwell Health; and Vivian Fox, Former President of the Child Care Corporation, for their work providing essential resources and care to the greater New York City community and putting working families first.

The event raised over $400,000 for Child Care Funds (CCF) and CCC programming. We were honored to be joined in person by distinguished guests and many of our colleagues and community members to reflect on the challenges of the past two years and celebrate our youth program participants’ accomplishments. Thank you to all who supported us this year, and we look forward to our 2023 event on Tuesday, November 14, 2023, at Pier 59’s The Current.
