THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to our 2018 Spirit of East Harlem Gala!

May 8, 2018 — Close to 400 guests danced and dined at The Plaza Hotel in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Little Sisters of the Assumption providing services in East Harlem.

A Lifetime Spirit Award was presented to rock legend Ronnie Spector, who performed two of her greatest hits, including “Be My Baby,” which filled the dance floor.

Let Lee, Founder of FPS/Nexus Financial Services was presented a Community Spirit Award for his steadfast support, and Sr. Susanne Lachapelle was presented a 60th Anniversary Spirit Award for her years of inspiring leadership.

The gala was followed by an After Party, hosted by our Junior Board.  (Click here to see photos and learn more about the Junior Board)

The gala is our single most important fundraising event of the year. It is instrumental in helping fund family health services that transform lives in East Harlem and surrounding communities.

You can still participate in our 60th Anniversary celebration by making donation today!
