We are excited to announce that Common Ground’s 10th Annual Celebrating Home + Community Gala will be held on Wednesday, October 24, 2012 in New York City at the exquisite Guastavino’s, located in midtown Manhattan. Cocktails will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m.
This year’s event promises to be a memorable evening—carrying special significance as it coincides with the completion of three new Common Ground buildings and 261 units of housing for formerly homeless and low-income residents.
This year we are privileged to honor Michael C. Slocum, President of Commercial Banking and Northeast Regional President at Capital One. Michael is being recognized for a career in finance that has helped organizations like Common Ground. Today, in part as a result of Capital One Bank’s thoughtful involvement, Common Ground has a portfolio of 16 buildings serving more than 4,500 individuals each year and the organization is a vital part of New York City’s antipoverty infrastructure.
Celebrating Home and Community is what Common Ground is all about, and we hope you will join us Wednesday, October 24th as we celebrate our successes and renewed commitment to ending homelessness in New York.
If you have any questions about the event, please contact Frederique Henriot, Director of Special Events at 212.389.9307 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
