New York City isn’t merely the place where Jerry Seinfeld lives, it’s a part of who he is and the legendary comedian joined his family in Central Park on Wednesday, May 31, for the 2017 GOOD+ Foundation NY Bash.
Founded by Seinfeld’s wife Jessica in 2001, GOOD+ to help families living in poverty through donated goods and services.
Set in Victorian Gardens at Central Park, the annual event, in its 11th year, marked the end of the school year with a carnival-style atmosphere and celebrity friends such as Melissa Joan Hart, Ali Wentworth, and David Burtka joined the Seinfeld’s in helping raise $600,000 for families in need.
“Our friends and sponsors who help make this afternoon possible are helping change lives because their support funds our work to build stronger families,” said Jessica Seinfeld.
“At GOOD+, we have learned that strengthening the entire family starts with helping the parents first, and the overwhelming success of Bash every year shows that New York City supports what we are doing, and that is truly inspiring,” she added.
Also present at the event were families from four GOOD+ networking sites – CUNY’s
Fatherhood Academy, Forestdale Inc., LSA Family Health Services, and STRIVE International. These programs provide training and support to low-income mothers and fathers, helping them become strong and stable caregivers for their children.
