2014 Special Circus Guests

Deron Williams NBA basketball player

Deron Williams
Deron Williams was born and raised in Parkersburg, West Virginia. He played point guard for the University of Illinois before being drafted 3rd overall by the Utah Jazz in the 2005 NBA Draft. 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).

Deron and his wife Amy established the Point of Hope Foundation in 2007 which is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and families. Deron and Amy live in Manhattan with their four children.


Nicholas Vicinanza
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.
