Thank you for Attending Our 2023 Annual Fundraiser
On Friday, October 20, 2023, a lively gathering of 200 guests filled the elegant Grand Ballroom at Maestro’s Caterers. We gathered, with a shared purpose, to support the vital services Bronx NHS provides and to celebrate the accomplishments of the distinguished honorees during the Annual Community Impact Awards & Fundraiser Night.
After cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and award presentations the guests feasted on a sumptuous dinner prepared by Maestro’s Caterers, Bronx Landmarks at tables adorned by Bamboo Party Hall, and danced to live performances by reggae sensation, Genaroots Band and DJ entertainment by Don’t Stop the Music.
