On behalf of the entire Staff and Board of Directors of NHSNYC, we sincerely thank all of our 40th Anniversary Sponsors, Donors, and Guests who participated in our 40th Anniversary Gala on Tuesday, October 18 at the beautiful Tribeca Rooftop. It was a celebratory occasion honoring NHSNYC’s 40-year history and looking ahead to the organization’s future work to be done.
We were pleased to present our annual Surprise Partnership Award to Toby Baba, Community Partnership Manager, AVP at Santander, and our Longstanding Partnership Award to Wells Fargo, accepted by Eileen Fitzgerald, Head of Housing Affordability Philanthropy.
We heard remarks from our Board Chair, David Bagatelle, our Chief Executive Officer, Derrick Griggs, our immediate past CEO, Susan Ifill, and our Director of Lending Services, Marita Bankhead.
Additionally, we heard a message of support from Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, and a compelling testimonial by Gladys Serrano, a 23-year client of NHSNYC who began as a first-time homebuyer and is now a landlord.
Thank you to all those who attended and supported the event! We are truly grateful for your partnership. To view and download our digital 40th Anniversary Gala Journal, please click here!
