Leaders for Compassion Annual Benefit Dinner

"120 Hearts fill the Bohemian National Hall to sup­port Heart’s Home...."

This is how Diana Bianchi Moison, who attended our Annual Benefit Dinner last Thursday, starts her account of the evening.

New York is a city which cel­e­brates gala din­ners and fundraisers every day of the year. But on May 5th, the third gala for Heart’s Home took the stage and left a lasting image on the devoted guests and friends who came to sup­port this most worthy of causes.

The Czech Republic offered the Bohemian National Hall as the décor for this ele­gant, beau­tiful, lively and very moving cel­e­bra­tion about Heart’s Home daily endeavors to help bring com­pas­sion to the lives of the needy all around the world. The evening began with a strong tes­ti­mo­nial video pre­pared by Father Paul Anel, to bear wit­ness to spe­cial moments of friend­ship and com­pas­sion that are brought to the less for­tu­nate around the NY area, by the team of reli­gious Sisters and vol­un­teers in Brooklyn, home of Heart’s Home in the US.

The evening con­tinued with a very lively auc­tion directed by CK Swett, renowned and grand per­son­ality of Christie’s auc­tioneer, who made the ball­room rock with laughter and good humor while the bids increased and helped reach the expected fundraising result for the event!

We can only thank the mem­bers of the Dinner Committee headed by Antoine Treuille, those of the Junior Committee and all the vol­un­teers, as well as Laetitia Palluat, President of Heart’s Home USA for having so ele­gantly orches­trated a lovely and “Heart Warming” evening of cel­e­bra­tion; A cel­e­bra­tion for this 21 year-old orga­ni­za­tion which everyday, dis­creetly but very effec­tively, com­forts those who are the least cel­e­brated in the world.

We invite you to share more about the beauty of this evening :
