Support Andrus

Gala 2019

The New York Botanical Garden
Friday, October 25, 2019

We hope that you will join us as we celebrate another year of nurturing hope at our Annual Gala on Friday, October 25, 2019 at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. We are thrilled to announce that our featured honoree will be Dr. John Castanaro, founder of Castanaro Dental, the award-winning 2019 Top Dentist Office in Yonkers, NY. ANDRUS is fortunate to have Dr. Castanaro as a friend who has provided countless hours of support for our children.

A portion of this year’s Gala will focus on raising funds to expand on ANDRUS’ technology resources. With the help of technology, our staff can better adapt curriculum and accommodate all youth. We hope you will consider supporting this important event by purchasing a sponsorship opportunity or individual gala tickets.

The evening will feature a cocktail-hour, sit-down dinner, silent and live auction, and an after-party with dancing!
