To comply with NYS and NYC Covid-19 directives restricting the size of gatherings, Forestdale’s Annual Benefit, scheduled for April 21, 2020, has been canceled.


The proceeds from the Benefit were to support services for youth, ages 16-24, aging out of foster care, and while we may not be able to hold our event, we humbly ask you to support our youth in other ways. Please consider taking the funds that you would have spent on a ticket or sponsorship package (now 100% tax-deductible) for the Benefit, and donating directly to Forestdale. Your help matters even more in these uncertain times.


As we act on local and state Covid-19 guidelines, it has become apparent how much we rely on connections with others to get us through the toughest times in our lives. While all of us face unprecedented challenges during the coronavirus crisis, we know that together we will emerge stronger, more connected, and with a deeper appreciation of each other. We thank you for your continued support of families in need now and always.
