2023 Benefit Highlights

Sesame Workshop hosted its 20th Annual Benefit highlighting Sunnier Days Ahead and the Workshop’s multi-year commitment to the emotional well-being of children and families in response to the growing mental health crisis. Honoring Bank of America, and Workshop President, Sherrie Westin on her 25th Anniversary at Sesame, the event also featured host Erica Hill, special guests John Oliver, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and the Sesame Street Muppets.

We are grateful to our donors. We loved celebrating Sunnier Days Ahead and having the opportunity to highlight our emotional well-being initiative to help children build a strong foundation for life.
