17th Annual Women of Valor Awards Tea

On Thursday, August 8, 2019, St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters celebrated our 17th Annual "Women of Valor" Awards Tea to benefit St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters.

Hosted by Macy's at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, this annual event honors a distinguished group of women who are leaders in their careers and in their communities.

Our Honorary Chair & Keynote Speaker was Caryl M. Stern, President & CEO, UNICEF, USA. The Macy's Community Star Award recipient was Jennifer Moore, Strategic Advisor, Corporate Social Responsibility, Kenneth Cole.

The 2019 Women of Valor Award Recipients were: Michelle DeCarlo, Associate, Jaros Baum & Bolles; Linda Foggie, Vice President, Wells Fargo; Rebecca Humphrey, Managing Principal, Focal Point Project Management; Sofia Juperius, Director, Marketing & Design, Paramount Group, Inc; Kelly Merino, Director, Project Management, CBRE; Michele O'Connor, Principal/Vice President, Langan; Mia Poppe, Esq., Managing Partner, The Law Firm of Poppe & Assoc, PLLC; Tamarra Wickes, Senior Account Executive, FCi-Furniture Consultants; and Mavis Wiggins, Managing Executive, TPG Architecture.

The theme of this year's event was, appropriately, The Children. UNICEF's Caryl Stern spoke passionately about the plight of children internationally, and attendees also watched a moving video about how St. Francis Food Pantries supports needy and disadvantaged children in the NYC area.

With more than 850 guests in attendance, the Woman of Valor Awards Tea event has proven to be a success in gathering so many individuals and corporations to raise the necessary funds to support our mission.

We are grateful to our Presenting Sponsors, Macro Consultants, and we want to thank all of our 2019 Women of Valor Awards Tea Committee, Corporate Sponsors and Supporters for believing in the mission of St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters. Our work truly would not be possible without your support!
