BronxWorks Executive Director Eileen Torres was honored alongside three other women by U.S. Congressman Ritchie Torres (NY-15) during the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) Women’s History Month celebration.
The annual event at the Botanical Garden honors local community leaders who have dedicated their lives and work to advocate for underserved populations and other amazing causes. Eileen was recognized for her years of work representing the Bronx’s underserved population.
Other honorees include Bronx River Alliance Executive Director Maggie Greenfield, Bringing the Peace, Inc. Founder Linda Kemp, and NYCHA Morrisania Air Rights Tenant Association President Tanya Pedler. Also on-hand to recognize these women were New York Botanical Garden Board Trustee Dianne Renwick, New York Botanical Garden Chief Executive Officer and The William C. Steere Sr. President Jennifer Bernstein, and Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark. Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson was also in attendance to celebrate these women’s accomplishments.
Some BronxWorks staff attended the event to celebrate Eileen’s accomplishments.
Thank you, Congressman Torres, NYBG, The Office of The Bronx Borough President Vanessa Gibson, Bronx District Attorney’s Office Darcel Clark, and all who participated in this special event!
