The event will be held on Sunday, March 27, 2022 from 9:30 AM-Noon at Li Greci’s Staaten, 697 Forest Avenue, Staten Island. As a fellow community leader, we are writing today to request your support of this event with a Corporate Sponsorship. 

Each year, nonprofit organizations select passionate and dedicated individuals to be honored at the breakfast. These unsung heroes are recognized for their commitment to helping others and fulfilling their organization’s mission.

Past honorees have included those from Community Health Action of Staten Island, Eden II, Grace Foundation, Jewish Community Center of Staten Island, Kaleidoscope, Project Hospitality, National Lighthouse Museum, Pride Center of Staten Island, Staten Island Partnership for Community Wellness, and Staten Island Running Association.
