On Thursday, June 1, 2017, The Fresh Air Fund hosted its Annual Spring Benefit at Chelsea Piers in New York City. The event welcomed 550 supporters and friends and raised nearly $1.2 million to benefit The Fresh Air Fund, a nonprofit organization. The benefit honored NBA legend Baron Davis, Hill Harper, award-winning actor and best-selling author, and Kimberly E. Steward, entrepreneur, philanthropist, producer, and founder of K Period Media, which released the Academy Award-winning Manchester by the Sea. Sarah Jones, Tony and Obie Award-winning performer and writer, was the emcee.
The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-profit-agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Each summer, nearly 7,000 children visit volunteer host families in rural and suburban communities along the East Coast and Southern Canada or attend five Fresh Air camps in the summer on a more than 2,000 acre site in Fishkill, New York. Young people also participate in year-round educational enrichment programs at camp and in New York City.
