Guests gathered at Tribeca Rooftop in New York City on June 19 for an impactful evening of games and fundraising for the power of play, at the fourth annual Get in the Game Gala.

This year’s event celebrated the outstanding leadership of our Most Valuable Principal Atiba Buckman of Speedway Academies in Newark, New Jersey, and of our most inspiring Junior Coaches from across region.

Funds raised will help Playworks bring safe and healthy play to more than 100,000 girls and boys at over 200 schools across New York and New Jersey this year.

A big thanks to all our amazing supporters and to everyone who came out to play with us making this evening of fun, community and fundraising efforts a success.  Special thanks to singer, Rebecca Black, for her performance at the our gala.
