The Knights of York began as a small group of professionals, who in the spirit of friendship and with a common purpose, would meet regularly to network and enjoy lively conversations over a savory meal. Out of these meetings, the Knights soon expressed an enormous sense of appreciation for their good fortune in life and business, and soon they wanted to give back to society, to dedicate themselves to an important cause. Their motto, “Every Knight for Their Tomorrow,” expresses the Knights’ desire to enrich the lives of children in need through charitable gift giving and by performing selfless deeds.
Early fundraising was focused on well-received golf outings, and quickly demonstrated how small actions could achieve great results. Since then, the Knights have undertaken other events, such as the Fall Knight Event, holiday gift giving, and its most ambitious, the Annual Black Tie Affair and Auction.
Throughout the year, the Knights of York host a variety of events to support
local children’s organizations in the New York metropolitan area, including a few
special events that repeat annually.
