Awards Dinner

The Jackie Robinson Foundation (JRF) hosts the Robie Awards Dinner in New York City on the first Monday of March each year. Attendees are introduced to the work of the Foundation and dine and dance at a prominent NYC venue. Individual and corporate honorees are recognized for promoting equal opportunity and humanitarianism consistent with the values and ideals embodied in the life of Jackie Robinson. The event raises funds to support JRF’s celebrated, 47-year-old college scholarship program, which provides four-year grants to highly motivated students accompanied by comprehensive support services to ensure success and develop leadership skills. A portion of the proceeds from the Robie Awards Dinner also supports The Jackie Robinson Museum National Legacy Campaign.
