CHPC’s 55th Annual Luncheon was our most successful fundraising event in decades! Many thanks to everyone who made it possible!

Over 900 guests were in attendance and we had an impressive group of awardees. We were also honored to have some very special guests present two of our awards: Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and actor Wendell Pierce, who has also played an important role rebuilding in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina. CHPC’s Executive Director, Jerilyn Perine, gave an update on our most recent work, which was compiled into Steering the New Course, and announced a feature soon to be on our website as part of our Making Neighborhoods project which will allow users to see how New York neighborhoods are changing.

Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development Alicia Glen delivered the keynote address, in which she announced to an expectant crowd the guiding principles of the housing plan that the administration unveiled just a few days later. View Deputy Mayor Glen’s keynote address below:
