Playathon 2024

Playathon is one of our most beloved traditions at New Jersey Youth Symphony. We are thrilled to return to The Mills at Jersey Gardens Mall in Elizabeth on Sunday, March 24. This year we will support children in our community by donating 25% of all gifts received the day of Playathon to Children's Specialized Hospital Foundation!

Playathon is also NJYS's largest fundraiser. Tuition only covers 70% of expenses and we fundraise for the remaining $90,000 to keep programming affordable for our families. Please help us reach our goal by June 30 by creating and sharing your fundraising page today!

Playathon 2023!
