Thank You for Making The Blue Party a Success!

At this year’s Blue Party, 450 new and familiar faces turned out to show their support for The New York Foundling and raise awareness about foster care.


We’re happy to announce that, thanks to our generous attendees and sponsors, the May 10 bash at the Bowery Hotel was a success — and we raised more than $100,000!


This means support for programs that set youth in foster care up for future success, like after-school support, Camp Felix, Haven Academy and our tutoring and educational advocacy services that The Foundling’s CEO and President Bill Baccaglini spoke about in his opening remarks.

The Blue Party Pictures

It was a sea of blue at The Blue Party! We’re pretty sure our guests represented royal, navy, cobalt, sky and every color of blue on the spectrum in between.


Katie Lyman snapped some gorgeous pictures of the attendees as they arrived and throughout the evening. You can check out pictures directly on her website or in our Facebook album.
