In light of the ongoing COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster will hold its annual Celebration of Charity and Caritas Awards Dinner online on June 9 at 7 p.m.
The Celebration of Charity is the agency’s largest event of the year and raises funds to support community programs, including emergency food and shelter assistance and substance abuse treatment and prevention. The funds raised stay local to support the marginalized and vulnerable in Orange, Sullivan and Ulster counties.
“While we will miss seeing our friends and celebrating our deserving honorees in person, we hope folks will join the online celebration to recognize our honorees and learn more about the work Catholic Charities is doing to help during the pandemic,” said Kristin Jensen, the agency’s chief advancement officer.
The 2020 honorees who will be celebrated on June 9 are The Bruderhof; Ellenville Regional Hospital; Drake Loeb PLLC, Attorneys at Law; and Thomas Kelly.
Details about how to attend the online event will be announced closer to June 9.
