The Chauncey F. Lufkin III Foundation attended The Robin Hood Foundation's Annual "Heroes" Breakfast on November 7, 2017. The event is held each year at the Cipriani location on East 42nd Street in Manhattan.
This year's event showcased several of the organization's donees and was the first time many donors had the opportunity to meet and greet Robin Hood's new Chief Executive Officer, Wes Moore, shown here with Cara Familet, Foundation Director, The Chauncey F. Lufkin III Foundation | Family Office.
Four organizations – Breaking Ground, Children’s Aid, The Door and Terra Firma - were showcased this year, with a representative client from each explaining the significance that the Robin Hood donee organization had insofar as impact on their lives.
“Robin Hood’s Heroes Breakfast is an opportunity for us to highlight the incredible resilience of New Yorkers fighting through poverty in all of its forms, as well as the life-changing work our community partners do every day to empower that resilience,” said Wes Moore, Robin Hood’s CEO. “I walk away from this breakfast with my heart filled with inspiration from what Wendy, Victor, and Nina have overcome; hope for their futures, and energy for our role in this fight against poverty.”
