GAL APPROVED! Give Back With Mission Society. Get Fit And Win! (A DivaGals Sweepstakes, Enter NOW!)By The DivaGals | March 31, 2017 | Gal Approved
GIVE. We loved attending and covering New York City Mission Society‘s Annual “Champions for Children” benefit last year. So were more than thrilled to return for 2017! On April 5, 2017, Mission Society will honor legendary actress and singer Diahann Carroll. This legendary icon is an award-winning and trailblazing actress, successful entrepreneur and devoted humanitarian. One of America’s major performing talents, she has starred on stage, screen, and television. She’s won Tony and Golden Globe awards over her long and prestigious career and she still finds time to support causes dear to her heart. Kathy Sledge of Sister Sledge will perform.The night’s benefit supports Mission Society’s programs and services that help youth and families in New York city’s most underserved communities to break the cycle of poverty and achieve success. The Gala will once again be held at the Mandarin Oriental at 80 Columbus Circle in Manhattan, starting with cocktails at 6:30 p.m., followed by a program of dinner, music and dancing.
