Hope for New York Spring BenefitJune/July 2011
Hope for New York (HFNY) held its Fifth Annual Spring Benefit “Unto Others” on Thursday, May 12, at Holy Apostles Church in Chelsea. Spearheaded by HFNY’s Young Supporters Committee, the evening kicked off with a dynamic gospel choir performance and continued by encouraging 350 attendees to respond to Jesus’ call to service in Matthew 7:12: “So in everything, do unto others what you would have them do to you.” The Rev. Leo Schuster was the speaker for the evening and HFNY’s board member Paul Horrocks was the emcee.
Each attendee was invited to engage in the greatest needs of NYC’s underserved communities by volunteering and giving financially to HFNY’s affiliates. A generous anonymous donor provided a $50,000 matching gift 1:1 opportunity so that every contribution received would be doubled. The event was underwritten so that one hundred percent of the donations will go toward programs that directly impact the communities HFNY serves. If you were unable to attend the benefit but would still like to participate in “Unto Others,” please visit www.hfny.org to learn about ways to volunteer and give to Hope for New York.
