Tonight in New York, Figure Skating in Harlem, a non-profit whose mission is to transform young lives and help girls to grow in leadership, confidence and academic achievement, will host its fifth annual Skating with the Stars, Under the Stars gala. The event will honor skating legend Tai Babilionia and New York State’s First Lady, Michelle Paige Paterson and will be held from 5:30pm-9pm at Wollman Rink in Central Park.
Established in 1997 with a special visit by Olympic gold medalist Scott Hamilton, Figure Skating in Harlem has served more than one thousand girls with a powerful program that prepares them for success in all aspects of life. FSH works with girls ages 6 to 18 who live in Harlem. Enrollment begins each September.
Future plans for FSH include opening its first Leading Edge Center on 125th Street, a 5,000 square foot space to accommodate the growing demand of our program and services.
