We are delighted to announce that our Annual Tribute Dinner has raised, to date, $980,000 to support New Yorkers in need!
On November 19, 2014, a record 780 people gathered in the spectacular Cathedral of St. John the Divine to celebrate outreach and honor the accomplishments of Henry P. Johnson and Evan A. Davis, pictured below with Episcopal Charities President John Talty and The Right Rev. Andrew Dietsche, Bishop of New York.
An address by Mr. Thomas Edwards inspired those gathered. Mr. Edwards is a graduate of the “Raising My Voice” leadership and public speaking program, part of the Re-entry Family and Faith Circles of Support program supported by Episcopal Charities at the Harlem Community Justice Center. He shared his story of personal transformation and spoke of the faith volunteers who provide hospitality and support to men and women returning home from prison. Mr. Edwards is pictured below with with the Rev. Chloe Breyer and the Rev. Keith Johnson, both of St. Philip’s Church in Harlem. (Click here for a video of Mr. Edwards’ address!)
Thank you to all who attended and supported the event.
