On May 8, 2018, United Way of New York City (UWNYC), the New York Jets, and the New York Giants are teaming up for the 25th Anniversary Gridiron Gala—celebrating their more than 40-year partnership that’s impacting children and families living in some of New York City’s most-challenged neighborhoods.

Each year at the Gridiron, UWNYC honors two players who personify the NFL’s dedication to community service, along with corporate leaders who are committed to giving back to NYC. This year, the Jets and Giants teams are receiving a special MVP award for their extraordinary leadership and commitment to their community. In the event’s 25-year history, only six MVP awards have been granted. Plus, NBC’s The Voice 2018 Contestant Tish Haynes Keys will be performing at our special Gridiron Gala halftime show. Join the players, honorees, and Tish on the red carpet for a night of philanthropy, sports, music and giving back to our community!
