New York Gives It Up for the Kids

Janie Marcus / September 17, 2008

Never let it be said that show-biz folks don’t care about the welfare of young ones.

New Yorkers for Children—which creates programs and funds to support services for children in foster care in New York City—held its Fall Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York last night, drawing in a slew of big-hearted stars for the black-tie event.

Among those who turned up for the soiree—which featured a performance by SNL alum Jimmy Fallon—were Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Blake Lively, Josh Lucas, Taylor Momsen, Julianne Moore and Robert Buckley, who seems willing to give the shirt off his back for any cause.

Way to give back, folks. And when you’ve finished taking care of disadvantaged kids, maybe you can apply your philanthropic efforts to the world’s at-risk adults.
