This event brings together New York’s media community at Irving Plaza for a “one-night only” CAREoke (karaoke) concert featuring 20+ courageous groups from all levels of the media industry. The past ten years’ sold-out events raised more than $1,200,000 that directly benefited the deserving children of The Valerie Fund. Our goal this year is to raise $200,000.
When Valerie Goldstein's parents founded The Valerie Fund in 1976, their dream was to help children receive high-quality medical and emotional care in a nurturing environment close to their homes. Today, there are seven Valerie Fund Children's Centers treating more than 4,000 kids in our tri-state area. In fact, one of the centers is located right here in Manhattan, at Columbia University’s New York Children's Hospital.
“"Everyone at the Center has made me feel like I am more than just a cancer patient to them. They always make the effort to know what’s going on in my life so that they can get to know me as a person."”
