A Gala Evening to Benefit Children and Families


THE BLOOMINGDALE FAMILY PROGRAM invites you to our Annual Benefit – an evening of celebration, great music, and delicious bistro fare – on Monday, October 24 from 6:30 to 8:30pm at Henry’s Restaurant, Broadway at 105th Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Noted singer/songwriter Baronessa will perform, and wine, beer and great food will be provided by Henry’s acclaimed kitchen.

Proceeds from the event will support the Bloomingdale Family Program’s nationally recognized programs providing early education, preventive services, afterschool enrichment, and parent development to families in need in Upper Manhattan.

Please join us in supporting one of the longest serving and most-honored programs in our community!

BARONESSA – aka Amy Baron Tarr – is a versatile vocalist and songwriter whose original material is rock at its core, with influences from jazz, Motown, and ‘80s and ‘90s pop. With recent performances at The Bitter End and a concert at The Trinity School, Amy has released four solo albums. Her mezzo-soprano voice can be haunting and full of heartache, or comic with a sassy edge, reminiscent of blues and jazz masters like Bessie Smith, Peggy Lee and Barbra Streisand.

HENRY’s is one of the most popular and beautiful gathering spots on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Spacious and welcoming, Henry’s recalls the Arts & Crafts masterpiece, the Gamble House, with stunning mahogany wainscoting and French doors opening onto Broadway’s largest sidewalk café. The chef is preparing a tempting menu of bistro food for our event, together with a great selection of wine, beer, and other beverages.
