Samaritan Daytop Foundation Virtual Gala – Wednesday, October 14th

Celebrating 60 Years of Samaritan Daytop Village Improving the Quality of Life for New Yorkers Facing Adversity

Samaritan Daytop Foundation is hosting its first Virtual Gala benefiting Samaritan Daytop Village on its 60th Anniversary. The event takes place on Wednesday, October 14th at 6:00 PM.

The Honorees for this year’s Gala are Actress Phylicia Rashad, Host and Weatherman of NBC’s Today Al Roker, and President and CEO of SterlingRisk David Sterling. NY1 News Political Anchor Errol Louis will host the night.

The event will benefit Samaritan Daytop Village as it combats the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the opioid epidemic, the homelessness crisis, and racial injustice that continue to impact the most vulnerable New Yorkers. Funds raised will support essential workers and enable the organization to continue providing critical services and COVID-19 related supplies to their clients.

The Honorary Gala Committee includes Judy Collins, Hon. David N. Dinkins, Michael Feinstein, and Alexander Smalls. The Virtual Gala Committee includes President and CEO Mitchell Netburn, Co-Chairs Jamie Covello, Sher Sparano and Board Chair Colleen Taylor, Bernie Kaplan, Richard Haray, Damyn Kelly, Harriet Norris, Roger Oliver, Steve Rockman, and SterlingRisk’s Brad Dubler.
