Last Wednesday, Rosie’s Theater Kids hosted their 13th annual gala celebration in New York City, honoring seven-time Grammy Award-winning singer Gloria Estefan, and power couple John and Margo Catsimatidis. Tony Award-winning actor B.D. Wong and radio personality Elvis Duran co-hosted the evening at the New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square. Business mogul Randi Zuckerberg; musician Steven Van Zandt and his wife, The Sopranos actress Maureen Van Zandt; and many other entertainment luminaries were also in attendance at this year’s gala.


Actor Tony Danza presented fellow Police Athletic League Board Member, John Catsimatidis; and his wife, Margo Catsimatidis, with the honor; while Ana Villafañe, from On Your Feet, presented the award to legend Gloria Estefan. RTKids recognized Estefan and the Catsimatidises for their philanthropic work, focusing on the arts and children. One hundred percent of the gala’s proceeds will support RTKids’ academic and artistic programs, which more than 2,000 New York City students utilize annually.
