‘Building Our Future Together’ was the emphasis of the Bronx Children’s Museum’s second annual awards gala on Tuesday, May 8 at the Edison Ballroom. The star-studded evening raised $465,000 and honored such local illuminaries as Sonia Manzano, Maria from ‘Sesame Street,’ author and activist; Kerry Malawista and Alan Heilbron, donors of the Museum On The Go! bus and Chazz Palminteri, Bronx-born actor, director and ‘A Bronx Tale’ creator.

Councilwoman Vanessa Gibson and Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. had a great evening.
“Kids need a place to help them follow their dreams. So every time you give money to a great cause like the Bronx Children’s Museum, you’re not just helping a child, you’re helping a universe. It’s a ripple effect,” stated Bronx native and Oscar-nominated actor Chazz Palminteri.
“I love to learn about nature and explore more about the art in the Bronx. I want people to aspire to go outside, explore trees, bugs and flowers located all around,” expressed Cerenity Blanding.
Carla Precht (l), Bronx Children’s Museum executive director and Hope Harley, Bronx Children’s Musuem Board of Directors president introduced the honorees.
Alan Heilbron and Kerry Malawista proudly displayed their award.
