In 2011, Deron was traded to the Brooklyn Nets. He is a three-time NBA All-Star (2010, 2011, 2012) and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist (2008, 2012).

HSS is thrilled to welcome 13-year-old Nicholas Vicinanza as Guest Ringmaster for the 8th Annual Big Apple Circus Benefit.

Born with cerebral palsy, Nicholas found it challenging to balance, ride a bike, and run around with his peers at school. When his parents heard about the expert musculoskeletal care at HSS, they brought Nicholas in to see Dr. David Scher, Associate Attending Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon. After being treated by Dr. Scher, Nicholas can now walk straighter and taller, and even recently joined his school’s basketball team and ran a 5K race in 33 minutes. Nicholas lives in Suffolk County with his parents and his twin sister, Julia.

An aerial space-age acrobatic adventure - an ascent to amazement! The risky rhythms of the Risley team, twisting and turning, topsy-turvy! The cadenzas of camels and horses, and the exuberance of playful pooches, out to dazzle with delight! The cunning conjurors of the quick-change act, defying belief and inspiring awe! The incredible flexible limbs of the contortionist in an act that will literally bend your imagination! And Francesco the clown, captivating the crowd with his musical merriment and gentle humor.
