Awards Dinner

The Jackie Robinson Foundation hosts its annual black-tie fundraiser in New York City each March.  At the Awards Dinner, individual and corporate honorees are recognized for embodying the humanitarian ideals of Jackie Robinson through devoting their lives to the promotion of social justice, excellence and human dignity. The gala raises funds for the Jackie Robinson Foundation’s unique scholarship program which provides financial grants in addition to mentoring and leadership training for minority college students, and for The Jackie Robinson Museum project.
