In addition, Oscar®-nominated actress Abigail Breslin will join us as a Special Guest and Honorary Junior Co-Chair and will share the story of her experience playing Helen Keller in the 2010 revival of “The Miracle Worker” on Broadway.


The event is Co-Chaired by Helen Keller International trustees Jennifer Buda, Desmond FitzGerald, and, Beverly Miller Orthwein, and all proceeds will support our sight and lifesaving programs in 22 countries around the world, including the United States.  Beginning at 6:30pm, the Gala will feature a cocktail hour, a seated dinner, and a live auction hosted by an auctioneer from the famous auction house Christie’s. Items available for bidding include: getaways to St. Martin, Wyoming, and Colorado, as well as deluxe tickets to a Yankee game against their rival the Red Sox.
