PowerPlay is excited to host our biggest in-person fundraiser of the year. Our Annual Gala Celebration is an extraordinary evening designed to celebrate the bright futures of our program participants, and honor the accomplishments of role models who inspire them. Over the years, this event has brought in hundreds of participants, including industry leaders, key-influencers, and VIP supporters.
Past honorees and influences include Padma Lakshmi, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, NYC Council Member Carlina Rivera, Laura Kohler (Senior Vice President of HR, Stewardship & Sustainability at Kohler Co.), and Monica Alvarez-Mitchell (CEO, Pulse Creative). Since its inception, the Gala has helped PowerPlay raise over $1.4M in unrestricted funds to support our work. Join us on October 27, 2022 in celebration of our girls and distinguished honorees.
PowerPlay is a place for you to feel confident and let go. It keeps you motivated. I love it!
I always have a problem with my confidence but now I am becoming better at believing in me.
I love participating in PowerPlay and being able to discuss different topics and learn about other people’s experience.
I have seen when you work hard it helps you get somewhere in life.
