Turnaround for Children hosted its Second Annual Impact Awards Benefit Dinner on April 28th at the Plaza Hotel. New York insiders like Julianna Margulies, Emily Mortimer, Shoshanna Gruss, Rebekah McCabe, who all strutted the red carpet in Chanel came out to support the organization. Emceed by Perri Peltz, the awards ceremony honored education reform advocates John Legend, Dr. Kelly Posner Gerstenhaber, who wore a black draped one-shoulder Alexander Wang dress, and NBC News’ Education Nation; Luke Russert accepted on NBC’s behalf. Highlights from the evening included a performance by students from P.S. 32 in the Bronx’s chorus and a live auction by CK Swett of Christie’s.

Turnaround works to transform high-poverty, low-performing public schools into positive environments that foster healthy growth in all aspects of students’ lives. For more details on the organization visit turnaroundusa.org.
