In honor of National Volunteer Month, we celebrated our volunteers on April 12th at FULLBEAUTY Brands’ headquarters for the annual Gordy Awards. The Gordy Awards is a way we give back to our volunteers and celebrate them for all the work they put in each and every day to help empower our women. At the Gordy Awards, there are four different categories to honor our NYC volunteers.
The Spirit Award honors the most supportive Partner Agencies from each New York branch and services over 6,000 women in the metro area every year. This was awarded to The Hope Program and The River Fund. The Stellar Award honors the generosity shown by our philanthropic partners, corporations, and foundations. This was awarded to Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP. The Service Award honors our most distinguished corporate partner whose generosity has really made a difference in the lives of our women across the globe. This was awarded to JP Morgan Chase. The Volunteer of the Year honors exemplary volunteers from each Dress for Success NYC location who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to provide quality services at Dress for Success and whose passion and commitment are unparalleled. Volunteer of the Year award recipients were Lynda Mota (Manhattan), Cheresa Fewell (Manhattan), Katherine Huff (Worldwide), and Carmen Melendez (Queens). Congratulations to our Gordy Award winners!
Dress for Success appreciates each and every one of our volunteers’ generosity of spirit and willingness to make a difference in the lives of the women we serve. Thank you for sharing and contributing to our mission of women’s financial empowerment.
A special thank you to The Kevin Sibley Duet, Kevin Sibley and Schad Pierre, for an amazing performance and photographer Alyssa Peek for capturing all of the night’s special moments.
