Perseverance in Hope
Perseverance in Hope: The Annual Joseph’s Home Benefit Luncheon was Wednesday, June 19, at Windows on the River. The 2019 Joseph’s Home Benefit Luncheon celebrated the remarkable healing and achievements of the acutely ill homeless men who have stabilized their health and transformed their lives at Joseph’s Home.
Dan Moulthrop, CEO of The City Club of Cleveland, was the emcee. The Most Reverend Nelson J. Perez, Bishop of Cleveland, was the keynote speaker, telling the crowd, “Hope in the midst of despair is at the center of Christianity. The resurrection offers us hope. Joseph’s Home is a sign of hope.”
The 2019 David Henderson Memorial Award was presented to Burt Saltzman of Dave’s Supermarkets for his outstanding generosity to the community and loyal support of Joseph’s Home. Richard Weaver and Jeanne Colleran Weaver were also recognized for their phenomenal generosity and dedication to the mission of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine demonstrates by the establishment of the first ever endowment fund for Joseph’s Home, the Sister Joan Gallagher Endowment Fund.
The event raised over $52,000 to benefit the men of Joseph’s Home! All funds raised will be used to provide meals, shelter and other care for the residents of Joseph’s Home. Thank you to all in attendance for their support and generosity!
