2018 IRISH EYES GALA
MAY 7


We are changing the game by serving as a catalyst for immediate, positive change in so many lives.

The Irish Eyes Gala, the Kelly Cares Foundation’s signature event, celebrates those that have demonstrated a dedication to improving the lives of others, in turn inspiring hope to all those they encounter along the way. The event is currently going into its 8th year & will be held at the Pierre Hotel on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.

It is the mission of The Kelly Cares Foundation to strengthen communities and inspire hope by investing resources to improve health and education. To date, the Kelly Cares Foundation has contributed over $4 million to support causes locally, nationally, and globally.
