During NYC’s financial literacy month of April Kids Who Bank has created an annual gala bringing recognition youth who are entrepreneurs/philanthropists and the adults who have created paths for them.

The first event was held on April 29th 2018 at the Jerry Orbach Theater located in Times Square, NYC and was met with a packed house of 248 attendees. Some of the dynamic honorees who left people inspired were for example: a seven yr. old who makes $100k yearly with her tutu clothing line, an eleven year old who donates comfort items to homeless people around California or a six yr. old who created his own science based cartoons on YouTube. Alizé Utteryn, CEO of AlizéLaVie Media was also one of incredible honoree with Pillar of light Award to reward her extensive work in the education, media and humanitarian field over the years. Congratulation to all organizers  for this first successful annual production and many thanks for their efforts to recognized youth and adults leaders in the community. We need more events of this caliber to inspire our youth.
