“What an Evening!” — a reflection on #ICNYgala2018 from The Rev. Dr. Chloe Breyer
As the week comes to a close, The Interfaith Center of New York wishes to thank everyone who made Monday evening’s #ICNYgala2018 so meaningful to the Interfaith Center and to our guests.
Thank you to our generous sponsors, ticket holders, and guests, our talented Emcee Mark Mitton, prayer givers Pratima Doobay of Sadhana: Coalition of Progressive Hindus, Ruth Messinger, American Jewish World Service and ICNY Board Member, and The Rt. Rev. Mary Glasspool of the Episcopal Diocese of New York and ICNY Board Member; Zuhair Hussaini, who beautifully offered the Iftar call to prayer at sundown, our award presenters Carol Bellamy, and Brigid McGinn of Gays Against Guns, speakers Naureen Akhter and NYPD Lieutenant Rafet Awad, and Philippe Petit, who helped raise additional funds for our work thanks to the generosity of Honoree Mary Jane Brock.
Speaking of honorees, three cheers to this year’s JPM Interfaith Award winners Mary Jane Brock, Amina J. Mohammed, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, and Parkland student activists Ryan Deitsch and Chris Grady of #MarchForOurLives, who each beautifully shared from the stage their passion for peace and diversity.
Images from the gala will be available on our website early next week, and in the meantime we invite you to click here for highlights or here to browse all of the photos from photographer Carolina Kroon.
