5th Annual New York Spirit of Francis Award Dinner
October 4 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Join us for the 5th Annual New York Spirit of Francis Award Dinner on October 4th at the Metropolitan Club to benefit our Patrons of Puerto Rico Relief Fund. The evening will honor our friends and partners, Goya Foods’ Bob and Peter Unanue and features a special performance by 10-time Grammy award-winning legend, Eddie Palmieri.
Catholic Extension has been providing financial support to the Catholic dioceses in Puerto Rico for 110 years. The organization has stepped up efforts to raise funds following Hurricane Maria, which made landfall on September 20, 2017, and devastated infrastructure, residences and an estimated 1,200 Catholic Church buildings. Since the hurricane, Catholic Extension has committed $1.5 million to the Puerto Rican church’s pastoral and charitable work.
We hope you will join us for this very special evening, and if you are unable to attend, we hope you will consider making a donation to the fund today.
