The Harlem Children's Zone recently held our annual Friend of the Children Award Dinner where we honored our very own Geoffrey Canada. Geoff has devoted his life to giving our kids — and all kids — the opportunity they deserve to realize their amazing potential. The evening was filled with inspiring tributes to his bold vision, brilliant leadership, and unwavering commitment to helping children and families.
Among the most spectacular highlights was a song and dance performance by HCZ and Promise Academy students. Ages 7 – 17, the kids worked for months with a professional choreographer to pull off a polished tribute to Geoff's journey from growing up in the Bronx, surrounded by violence, to transforming an entire community and saving thousands upon thousands of children just like him.
