Bishop’s Christmas Luncheon
Date:Dec 7, 2016
Russo’s On the Bay in Howard Beach, Queens
The Bishop’s Christmas Luncheon, hosted by the Catholic Foundation for Brooklyn and Queens, is set to take place on Wednesday, December 7, at Russo’s On the Bay in Howard Beach, Queens. This year’s honorees include Brendan and Barbara Dugan, Stephen Somers and Bishop Raymond Chappetto.
The proceeds from this annual luncheon benefit needy students in Brooklyn and Queens through the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund, a scholarship program funded by the Catholic Foundation for Brooklyn and Queens, as well as the evangelization of our youth in the Diocese of Brooklyn through the Catholic Youth Ministry Initiative. Last year, the event raised nearly $750,000.
Juliet Papa, reporter on 1010 WINS radio station and a friend of the diocese, will be serving as this year’s Mistress of Ceremonies. Students from St. Bartholomew Catholic Academy in Elmhurst will be performing the Nativity.
