“The thing about Sesame Street is that no one is better at teaching kids how to communicate with each other and the outside world. With autism that is one of the biggest challenges. No one has a higher skill set than the group to take on something as difficult as this. I really think they can do incredible things.” John Oliver

Sesame Street Gala

The honoree’s

The 14th Annual Sesame Workshop Benefit Gala was held at the Cipriano 42nd Street. Sesame Workshop hosted the evening as a fundraising event, and to honor outstanding individuals around the world who have contributed to education. They celebrated their newest initiative, Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children, which provides tools for families of children with autism to help with everyday challenges.  This initiative also aims to reduce the stigma and misperceptions surrounding autism, to help everyone see commonalities instead of differences and celebrate the amazing in all children. The event will honor the organization, Exceptional Minds, for being the first non-profit digital arts school for young adults on the autism spectrum. Dr. John E. Kelly III, SVP of Cognitive Solutions and Research at IBM, will be accepting the Corporate Leadership Award on behalf of the company for their valued partnership and innovative use of technology to education children. The evening will be hosted by HBO’s John Oliver and the lovable Sesame Street Muppets, and includes a special musical performance by Charlie Puth.
