A Love Letter To Riley’s Way


May 29, 2024 | 6 PM | The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, New York, NY


Join us for A Love Letter to Riley’s Way as we celebrate 10 years of investing in and supporting the next generation of kind leaders.

A Love Letter to Riley’s Way is a fun-filled celebration at The Lighthouse at Pier 61 in NYC with delicious food, bottomless drinks, entertainment, and a fabulous silent auction. Meet Riley’s Way young changemakers and hear their incredible stories.

Sponsors are invited to support our biennial in person fundraiser and the 2024 Call For Kindness cohort. Our national Call For Kindness gives young leaders (ages 13-22) the skills, connections, and funding they need to run social impact projects that inspire kindness and strengthen their local, national, or global communities.

Email Lauren Shenkman, Director of Partnerships and Programs, (lshenkman@rileysandler.org) for questions and sponsorship opportunities.
