Join us for the virtual event of the year!
Date:May 20, 2021
Time:6:30 p.m. EST
In its 54th year, Celebrity Sports Night continues to be one of the premier fundraising events in the New York Metropolitan area. The event raises funds to enrich the lives of children and adults with all types of disabilities and acute medical needs and is attended by 600-800 members of the corporate world, community leaders,
philanthropic individuals, celebrities and notable athletes.
For the 2021 virtual event, we plan to emulate many of the classic experiences that our guests come back for every year, including celebrity meet-and-greets and a moving performance by our students with disabilities. We also plan to hold our silent and live auctions virtually, both with an exciting array of items and packages. Past live auction items have included a round of golf with Jack Nicklaus and a private party in the New York Mets owners’ suite. One new element we are introducing are pre-event virtual meet-and-greets with celebrities for our VIP supporters.
To see the event in action, watch our 50th Anniversary highlights video at 50th Annual Celebrity Sports Night Video.
Words from some of our past attendees best describe the evening and its impact on them:

- “Tonight has been an eye-opener for me…these young men and young women at this school here, this Center, they are the true heroes. Nothing will ever mean more to me than the honor that you bestow on me tonight because of these young men and women.” -Joe Theismann, NFL MVP
- “It’s amazing how everyone comes together for a good cause… I’m happy to be a part of this night,” -Dwight “Doc” Gooden, 3-time World Series champ
