Gala Galore

Our 12th annual Spring Gala held at USHG’s Bay Room on April 2, 2019 was a magical evening!  We can’t thank our chefs, sponsors, host committee and volunteers enough for the unbelievably delicious and entertaining night. As always,  our amazing chef partners did not fail to impress – serving over 40 delicious tastings – including Gramercy Tavern’s Citrus Cured Char Pistachio Tart and Sugar Hill Creamery’s A$sop Rocky Road Ice Cream.

“Congrats on the hands down best gala yet!  The space was beautiful, the energy was phenomenal, and the food was next-level awesome.”
“I was struck by the turnout of all-star chefs and found myself feeling lucky to be part of this supportive community.”
“Working with Wellness in the Schools has been one of the most rewarding partnerships of my career. Nancy, Bill and the entire WITS team do an incredible job of making their sponsors feel a part of the family instead of just a logo at an event. It has always been the mindset that WE are making an impact together and the gala is a wonderful example of this mentality in action. As a WITS partner, the gala is a celebration we look forward to every year; one that will continue to be a milestone to celebrate wins, bring awareness to the “heart” work and integrate the many stories of the WITS extended family.” – Danielle Sandars, Director, Employee Communications & Engagement,  Converse
“We here at Crafted Hospitality are thrilled to continue to support Wellness in the Schools and their ongoing work towards creating healthier eating habits in our schools. This event is a testament to all the time and energy Bill & Nancy have put into to creating such a spectacular organization.” – Tom Colicchio
“WITS is an amazing program. Being a part of the Gala each year is super important to us. As a father of two girls in the NYC public school system, WITS’ ongoing efforts to get kids excited about cooking and eating couldn’t be more near and dear to my heart. We can’t wait to see you all next year!” -Wylie Dufresne
