From the BKS board, staff, children, and families… thank you!

Since the first-ever Yuletide Ball in 1920, the event has been a symbol of the spirit of the holidays, combining good cheer and doing good. Year after year, nearly 1,000 generous individuals come together to break the cycle of poverty where it does the most harm—in early childhood.

A very big thank you to Co-Chairs Lindsay McCann and Julia Neff, the Yuletide Committee, our Yuletide sponsors and supporters, and everyone who hosted pre-Ball dinners.

We hope everyone had a wonderful time, and we look forward to seeing you again next year! If you haven’t done so already, there’s still time to make a special gift.

You can find us on Instagram, and Twitter and post your own photos using #2018YuletideBall.

Thank you again for your generosity and best wishes this holiday season!
