Thank you for joining us at the 2023 Blue Party and helping us surpass our goal and raise over $135,000 for the children, adults, and families served by The Foundling!

May is National Foster Care Month, a time to recognize that we each play a role in enhancing the lives of children and teens in foster care.

Each May, in honor of this important month, The Foundling’s Junior Board hosts its signature spring event, The Blue Party, bringing together more than 400 guests who share a commitment to building futures for the young people that live, grow, and learn in our community. The event supports The Foundling’s programs that help children and families successfully navigate their challenges – whether in foster care, living with a developmental disability, or in preventive services – while providing them with opportunities for strength and independence.

The Blue Party offers guests the opportunity to meet the staff who support the children and families we serve, and to enjoy an incredible evening filled with craft cocktails, a sampling of NYC’s finest foods, music, auction and raffle items, and more!

Her music has been praised by the best in tastemaker media, including features in Nylon, Pitchfork, Red Bull, LA Weekly, Okayfuture, MTV Brazil, C-Heads Magazine, Ableton, and BBC Radio 1xtra, and has led her to work with international brands including Nike, Laura Mercier, Native Instruments, Zig Zag and Harper’s Bazaar.
