NYU Child Study Center raises a record $3.4 million at Seventh Annual Child Advocacy Award Dinner

December 8, 2004 (New York, New York) On Monday, December 6, 2004 the NYU Child Study Center raised a record $3.4 million at the Seventh Annual Child Advocacy Award Dinner held at Cipriani 42nd Street. This year's dinner, "Changing the Face of Child Mental Health," was chaired by Linda and Arthur Carter and honored The Honorable Michael R. Bloomberg, Mayor of the City of New York for his dedication to philanthropy and civic affairs relating to children and public health.

"We've got to do things for our children who don't reach out and ask for help themselves," said The Honorable Michael R. Bloomberg, Mayor of the City of New York. "The Child Study Center is working to make sure all children get the opportunity to participate in the great American dream."

ParentCorps, a Child Study parenting program aimed at promoting social and academic competence and preventing conduct problems in preschoolers was highlighted in a special reading by Uma Thurman. The presentation focused on one family who has benefited from the ParentCorps program.

"Having a child with a mental or psychiatric disorder is the last stigma. We can say the word 'cancer' out loud, we can discuss seizures, but too many of us shy away when the topic comes to child psychiatric disorders like depression," said Harold S. Koplewicz, M.D., Director of the NYU Child Study Center.

Guests at the Dinner included Arthur Altschul, Trustee, The Whitehead Foundation; The Honorable Alfonse D'Amato; Cyndi Lauper; Andre Balaz; Erica Jong, author, Fear of Flying.; as well as NYU Child Study Center Board members Brooke and Daniel Neidich; Alice Tisch; The Honorable Jon S. Corzine; Linda and Arthur Carter, publisher, The New York Observer; Jane Rosenthal, Tribeca Productions and Craig Hatkoff; and Claude Wasserstein.
