The Foundling’s Annual Blue Party Raises $145k for Youth in Foster Care

More than 450 guests joined us for The Blue Party at the Bowery Hotel on May 9, 2018, and with their help, we raised a remarkable $145,000 for our programs supporting youth in foster care!


We thank all of our attendees for believing in the importance of our kids’ future success, and for recognizing the vital role programs like Camp Felix, Haven Academy, Road to Success, and the College Dorm Project play in those outcomes.
