Spring Benefit

Union Settlement Spring Benefit

In light of the current circumstances, we unfortunately are canceling our Spring Benefit, which was scheduled to take place on April 21st at Gotham Hall. Each year, our Spring Benefit raises critical funds that enable us to provide crucial services to the residents of East Harlem. This year’s gala was going to be an especially celebratory evening for us as we mark our 125th Anniversary.

However, even though our gala is canceled, the need for services in our community has only increased. People living in poverty will experience additional economic and medical risks related to this pandemic and its repercussions, and we hope we can count on you to make a gift to support this most vulnerable population.
