The New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund will host its Second Annual Kick Off to Summer Benefit to honor New York City’s fallen first responders and raise funds and awareness for the families they left behind.

The event is led by Honorary Chairs Scarlett Johansson, Vincent Piazza, and Kenan Thompson, along with the Benefit Fund’s Host Committee of young professionals.

Held at the Empire Hotel Rooftop, 44 West 63rd Street, the evening will begin with outdoor cocktails and music under the stars at 6:00 p.m., with hors d’oeuvres, raffles, a silent auction, and gift bags of fabulous items. Music will be by DJ Raffael De Luca.

General admission tickets are $150, with a special ticket rate of $100 for active-duty NYPD, FDNY, PAPD and EMS first responders who protect and serve our community every day.

The Benefit Fund’s mission is to provide assistance to the families of New York City Police Officers, Firefighters, Port Authority Police and EMS Personnel who have been killed in the line of duty. The funds raised from this event will allow the Benefit Fund to continue to make annual distributions to these families as well as provide additional programs to help them cope and connect in the future.
