Gala Header


JASA invites you to join us at our Gala on May 17, 2023.

Tickets can be purchased at the door (please note, seating is not guaranteed). Guastavino's is located at 409 E 59th St, New York, NY 10022. Parking is available across the street from the venue. For any questions, please email development@jasa.org.

JASA's Gala supports all of JASA's programs to address the needs of older New Yorkers: social connection, economic security, food security, physical and mental health, safety at home, safe housing, and protection from abuse and neglect.



Give for Good

Can't make it to JASA's Gala? You can still Give for Good!

Give for Good is an interactive opportunity for attendees to come together to support JASA services live at the Gala. Even if you cannot attend, you can still donate to essential, life-saving services.
