Catholic Charities Community Services will present its Heart and Soul Award to Bishop Emeritus Matthew H. Clark at the agency’s fifth-annual Breakfast with Friends, which will be held March 4 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency Rochester. Iraq war veteran and “Dancing With the Stars” contestant Noah Galloway will be the keynote speaker at the breakfast.
Catholic Charities Community Services, which this year is celebrating its 35th anniversary, provides services for people in the Rochester area who have developmental disabilities or traumatic brain injuries, as well as those seeking an alternative to placement in nursing homes and those living with HIV and other chronic illnesses. Bishop Clark was chosen as this year’s Heart and Soul Award recipient because his call to action several decades ago led to the opening of the agency’s first residential home in Lyons in 1980.
The agency also will be presenting Wegmans with its Community Champion Award in recognition of the company’s leadership in the employment of people with developmental disabilities. Ginny Ryan, news anchor for 13 WHAM, will emcee the event.
Single tickets for the program, which includes a full sit-down breakfast, may be purchased for $35 apiece. For more information, visit www.cccsrochester.org or contact Joan Brandenburg at 585-339-9800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
