Thank you to our incredible guests for joining BronxWorks as we celebrated 50 years of supporting the community!
The BronxWorks 50th Anniversary Gala took place on May 18, 2023, at the New York Botanical Garden!
Thanks to all of our amazing sponsors, supporters, staff, and guests, the BronxWorks 50th Anniversary Gala was a resounding success. Special thanks to our Champion sponsor of the night, Ørsted, and our Advocate sponsors, Doug & Suzanne Tween, Christian & Ting Lee, JP Morgan Chase, and Bruce Phillips & Joan Feeney. We enjoyed a wonderful evening at the beautiful New York Botanical Garden, with cocktails served outside overlooking the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory and live music by Tres Gatos, followed by dinner in the Garden Terrace Room.
We could not be more thankful to our Host and Special Ambassador for the evening, the incomparable Seth Meyers, who helped us celebrate this remarkable evening with even more laughter and festivity.
Thank you as well to New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Bronx Borough President Vanessa Gibson for honoring the 50th Anniversary of BronxWorks and sharing our vision and mission to build a better future for the communities of the Bronx.
Huge thanks to our 50th Anniversary Gala Honorees. We were so thrilled to honor long-time member of the BronxWorks Board of Directors, Doug Tween. A partner at Linklaters, Doug has dedicated many years as a Board Member at BronxWorks providing steady guidance and support to help us focus and grow our impact. We were also so happy to honor The Monadnock Family Of Companies, an important partner in our work to improve the communities of the Bronx. Monadnock shares our vision of a borough filled with beautiful and affordable housing options and has worked with BronxWorks to bring effective support programs to their residents and households that can prevent evictions and keep people stably-housed. Thank you to Doug and thank you to the Monadnock Family of Companies for your support in this milestone celebration!
Thank you to all of our staff and partners who worked to make this night happen. Thank you to the BronxWorks Development Department and staff volunteers, to the middle school essay writers for being our future stars, to BLB Consulting for their indispensable help putting the night together for many months, to BronxNet for their work on our video programming, to the New York Botanical Garden for the venue, food, and drinks, to the BronxWorks Board of Directors for their unyielding support and leadership, and of course, to all of the staff in the 50-year history of BronxWorks who have contributed their efforts to building this organization and to improving the lives of countless Bronx residents.
