Children At Heart Gala Dinner & Celebrity Fantasy Auction
Celebrate “Children of the World” at the Children At Heart Gala hosted by Children of Chernobyl (CCOC) as it marks the Chernobyl disaster’s 25th anniversary with a star-studded event, including a celebrity roster of attendees and Fantasy Auction items. To date, CCOC has rescued 2,783 children on 95 rescue missions, airlifting them from Chernobyl to Israel to escape the contaminated living conditions caused by the 1986 Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor explosion. This Holiday season celebrities and New York’s elite have once again committed to this cause in full force, donating time, money and auction items. Last year’s gala raised more than $1.5 million to save the Children of Chernobyl.
Honorees include legendary actor Kirk Douglas who will be presented with the Children At Heart Award by his son, Academy Award winner Michael Douglas. Actresses Dakota and Elle Fanning will be honored with the Children f The World Award. Last year Whoopi Goldberg received the Children At Heart Award and Jesse Eisenberg was a Guest of Honor.
Founding Board Member of CCOC and sister of famed director Steven Spielberg, Nancy Spielberg and Academy and Golden Globe award-winning actor Jon Voight will also be in attendance to host the event.
