Bent on Learning 6th Annual Gala to Support Yoga in NYC Public Schools @bentonlearning

This past Tuesday night Bent on Learning held their 6th Annual Gala to Support Yoga Programs in NYC Public Schools. The charity dinner raised over $350,000 for the cause.

Blue Bloods actress Bridget Moynahan was the hostess and greeted guests to the dinner portion after the cocktail party and silent auction. Miss Yoga herself and Mrs. Baldwin then led students from the Children’s Workshop School and New Design High School to a live on stage yoga performance. Several students then spoke on stage about how yoga has profoundly helped them in their daily lives. The guest of honor was Gopi Kallayil, Chief Evangelist of Brand Marketing at Google. He discussed his feelings on the importance of yoga availability in public schools and then proceeded to do a brief session with the dressed up guests at the Gala.

Joining co-founders Anne Desmond and Jennifer Ford were Hilaria and Alec Baldwin, Bridget Moynahan, actor Kevin Navayne, Angel Kagame, First daughter of Rwanda, Former Ms. Teen USA Kamie Crawford, as well as other notables and board members.
