NYU Child Study Center to hold picnic for ParentCorps

July 27, 2005

On Friday, August 5, 2005, Jane and Jimmy Buffett and Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff will host Picnic for ParentCorps, a summer dinner with live entertainment to benefit the NYU Child Study Center. All proceeds from the event, to be held in Water Mill, New York, will support the Center's ParentCorps program which applies scientifically-proven methods to help children and families from New York's most disadvantaged neighborhoods turn their lives around.

Picnic guests will include Liz Robbins; Allen Grubman; Benjamin Lambert; Beth Rudin DeWoody; Byron Wien; Robert Wiesenthal; Eric Ruttenberg and Perri Peltz; Steven Rubenstein; Anne Keating, Senior Vice President, Public Relations, Bloomingdale's; Eugene Greene; Stewart Lane and Bonnie Comely; as well as NYU Child Study Center Board members; Brooke and Daniel Neidich; Alice and Thomas Tisch; Luly and Anthony Drexel Duke; Lisa Pevaroff Cohn and Gary Cohn; Thomas H. Lee and Ann Tenenbaum; Ellen and Howard Katz; Jill and Robert C. Smith; and Claude and Bruce Wasserstein.

Children with behavioral problems are more likely to drop out of school, to abuse drugs and to go to jail. In New York City alone 10,000 students are suspended from school each year, mostly for aggressive or violent behaviors. ParentCorps' 26-week parenting program decreases aggressive behavior in preschoolers, preventing behavioral problems before they become ingrained causing irreparable consequences for the child and society at large.

TIME: 7:00 p.m.
