The collection entitled, “The Comedians,” was the brainchild of artist and photographer Limor Garfinkle. Featured within the eye-catching photo series are Tracy Morgan, Jim Gaffigan, Lewis Black, Brooke Shields, Mindy Cohn, Jill Kargman, Jim Norton, Judy Gold along with 30 other comedians and comedic actors.

The Cause

Commonly misunderstood and often mistreated, ADHD takes a toll on both children and their families. The Division of ADHD, Learning Disabilities, and Related Disorders provides cutting-edge treatment and evaluation to children with a wide variety of learning and mental health issues so they can thrive and succeed—today, tomorrow, and throughout their lives.

Helping Children in Need 

With the donations we raised last year, Mount Sinai’s Division of ADHD is now able to offer a sliding scale– services by income that went down to as little as $5 a session.
