Live entertainment provides a positive source of inspiration for children in a world where there are many negative alternatives.

Most Valuable Kids of Greater New York, Inc. (MVK) brings this inspiration to underserved kids in the New York Metropolitan Area. MVK does this by offering children’s organizations access to cultural events, professional and collegiate sports and entertainment events through an online ticket donation and reward system.

Most Valuable Kids Tickets - 4th & Grub Helping!MVK overcomes the financial obstacles associated with attending live events by distributing unused tickets to children who would otherwise not be able to afford to attend.

These tickets are distributed to boys and girls, 18 and under, through organizations that focus on children in low-income and under-served households.

4th & Grub was invited to the 1st place New York Mets game on August 16th, 2015 to see for ourselves the great work MVK is doing for the youth of our nation.  You can read about the experience here.

Make a Wish

Tens of thousands of volunteers, donors and supporters advance the Make-A-Wish® vision to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. In the United States and its territories, on average, a wish is granted every 37 minutes. We believe a wish experience can be a game-changer.


Family and Friends For Freedom is a 501 (c)(3) Organization. Our mission provides financial support grants to combat wounded service men and women from all branches of the United States Armed Forces.

Our severely wounded continue to fight battles here at home with their struggle to adjust to their injuries. Too often, when a service member is wounded in combat, their entire family shoulders the pain and financial burden. We help to ease the financial worries of our wounded warriors and their families during their long road to recovery.
