Champions for Children Gala

Thank you for supporting our Champions for Children Gala!

You helped us raise $1.25 million for Jay Fund families

The 18th annual Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Champions for Children Gala raised more than $1.25 million because of YOU! Thank you for giving, bidding on auction items, and being a part of the event. Because of you, the Jay Fund can continue to BE THERE for families tackling childhood cancer in NY/NJ.
