New 42 Gala 2020
Honoring Marc Spilker with the Marian Heiskell Award

Supporting New 42 & New Victory’s Arts and Education Programs

All fully tax-deductible Gala donations support New 42’s vital work empowering kids, artists and educators through the performing arts.

Originally scheduled to air on June 1, 2020, the New 42 Virtual Gala was postponed out of respect for George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement. Read the full New 42 statement and explore resources.
