Honorary Co-Chairs include Stephanie March & Bobby Flay, Mariska Hargatay & Peter Hermann, LaTanya Richardson Jackson & Samuel L.

CDF will also salute Marian Wright Edelman and Geoffrey Canada for their long standing commitment to children who have beaten the odds as well as some of the past recipients of CDF’s Beat the Odds program.
