June is Caribbean Heritage Month in the USA!
Brooklyn Borough President, Eric Adams, Congressmen Ed Towns, Charles Rangel, Dr. Marcella Maxwell, Consul General Dr. Donna Hunte-Cox, Earl Phillips, Anthony Prudenti, Hon. Annette Robinson, and Al Sharpton(Pending) are expected to pay tribute to Mr. William Bill Howard who will receive NTAC’S Shirley Chisholm Spirit Award on June 13th, 2017
New York City’s nonprofits serve so many families and neighborhoods, but they often do not receive the credit they deserve.
NTAC’s Secretary/Treasurer, Gayle Gilbert, reports, “This will change on June 13th, 2017, when supporters of NTAC gather at a special gala reception honoring NYC nonprofits.” The gala will be held from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm at Giando on the Water, located at 400 Kent Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11211. Eleven (11) nonprofits will benefit from free technical assistance this year. Nonprofit beneficiaries are: John StepToe Foundation (Brooklyn), Carlos Lezama Archives & Cultural Museum (Brooklyn), Wall Ball (Staten Island), The Rock (Staten Island), Morningside Retirement & Health Services Inc. (Manhattan), The Liberian Organization (Staten Island), Judah International Center (Brooklyn), American Foundation of University of West Indies (Citywide), Negril Education Environment Trust (Caribbean), and Redeemed (Queens). In addition, National Council of Women of America(NYC) will receive The Nonprofit of the Year Award. Accepting the award will be its President, Ms. Saideh Browne.
Vice Chair, Rev. Dr. Kanyere Eaton, states, “Proceeds also will enable the Neighborhood Technical Assistance Clinic to offer free capacity building trainings to more nonprofits during the year.
“It’ll be a spectacular event,” says visionary, Rev. Dr. Valerie Oliver-Durrah, President of the Neighborhood Technical Assistance Clinic. “Back by popular demand, Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill will host a Caribbean buffet alongside the formal dinner buffet. An awards presentation will be a classic celebration for New York City’s nonprofits and the neighborhoods they serve, and the Caribbean guests honored during Caribbean Heritage Month.” Antigua & Barbuda Musician, Mr. Patrick “Johnny” Gomes and the City Shout Steel Orchestra will provide musical performances. There will also be entertainment by Tropicalfete.
Rev. Sylvia Kinard Esq. confirms that,
“The mission of the Neighborhood Technical Assistance Clinic is to serve the needs of philanthropic individuals and organizations in their efforts to develop support and maintain effective community-based and faith-based programs. We also serve non-profits wishing to improve programs and organizational capacity for addressing the needs of low-income and service-starved neighborhoods. We provide consultation, strategic direction and management, technical assistance and forums for increasing substantive outcomes in all these areas of human and financial investment.”
