Celebration for Kids

Celebration for Kids is an unforgettable holiday party designed to raise funds to support programs that help kids enjoy a brighter holiday season and receive vital support and services throughout the year.

Join the Party!

Join us for a re-imagined Celebration for Kids!

You’ll find the party at the Seaport Hotel, just across the street from our home of 17 years, the World Trade Center.  What won’t change?  The food, the fun, and the philanthropy.  

Stay tuned for more information on the upcoming  19th Annual Celebration for Kids on Saturday, December 4, 2021. 

About the Celebration

Participating Restaurants

Each year, dozens of local restaurants and chefs donate their time, expertise, and amazing food for our Celebration for Kids gala. Thanks to their generosity of both their time and product, these restaurants have helped us raise more than $14 million for kids. 

Help us help our chefs by purchasing gift cards this holiday season. Below is a list of restaurants that have been loyal Celebration participants through the years. Please consider buying a gift card or two this holiday season and help them get through these challenging times.
