Chapman Partnership Celebrates 12th Annual Gala
Chapman Partnership celebrated its 12th Annual Gala at the JW Marriott Marquis. With nearly 600 guests attending, this year’s Gala raised over $1.6 million to support life-changing and empowering programs for the homeless. The Miami HEAT was the recipient of the Alvah H. Chapman, Jr. Humanitarian Award. Accepting the award was Alonzo Mourning.
Special thanks to our Gala co-Chairs Terry Buoniconti and Tracy Wilson Mourning for their gracious efforts in chairing this elegant and entertaining gala. We also thank our Mistress of Ceremonies, Laurie Jennings, the Gala committee, the hosts and sponsors for their support and as well as the staff and volunteers at Chapman Partnership making this an exciting and beautiful evening.
At Chapman Partnership we empower homeless men, women and children to build a positive future by providing the resources and assistance critical to growth and independence. We help the homeless by providing a comprehensive support program that includes emergency shelter, meals, health, dental and psychiatric care, day care, job training, job placement and assistance with securing stable housing.
Since 1995, we have seen more than 96,000 admissions including 19,000 children. We have 800 beds for men, women and children, with private rooms for our families. We have had more than 162,000 patient visits to our medical clinics. We serve 3 hot meals a day, 365 days a year for more than 800,000 meals per year.
Chapman Partnership thanks our friends and supporters in helping us to reduce homelessness in our community. The need does not go away; the work is not finished and the challenge remains large. Learn how you can empower the homeless at chapmanpartnership.org #CPEmpower @chapmanpartner.
