The Friars hope and pray that you and your loved ones are safe and well.

We are sad to announce we have cancelled this year’s Sharing Hope Celebration Dinner originally scheduled for October 2, 2020 in New York City.

We will miss being together with you, but everyone’s safety is of primary concern. Our Honorees, though disappointed about the cancellation, were most understanding and in agreement with our decision. “We’ll do it next year.”

This annual dinner has always been more than just a fundraiser, but also a time for us to gather and share stories of hope and inspiration with dear friends. However, in spite of the cancellation, now more than ever, the Friars must continue to raise funds to support their ministries.

In these most challenging of times, some of those dear friends have stepped forward and offered the greatest hope – a ‘matching gift’ challenge to help us raise the necessary funds.

Several friends have already pledged up to $150,000 to the Sharing Hope “MATCH CHALLENGE”, and have invited other “friends of the Friars” to join them to meet the challenge of raising $250,000.

We are now reaching out to you!! .… This year, instead of joining us in NYC in your evening finery, can you help us meet these challenging times with a special Sharing Hope “Match Challenge” gift?

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us. As always, you remain in our prayers!
