Saluting NYC Nonprofits and the Neighborhoods They Serve
A beautiful New York City night overlooking the East River with a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline—it was the perfect setting for the Neighborhood Technical Assistant Clinic (NTAC) annual gala. Designed to pay tribute to that special breed of people who work to improve the lives of others through community-based and faith-based organizations, the event took place at Giando’s on the Water in Brooklyn.
The more than 250 guests—all dressed in white, took advantage of what for many was a rare occasion to network and see friends and colleagues since the beginning of the COVID pandemic.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to House of the Lord Churches National Presiding Minister Emeritus Rev. Herbert D. Daughtry for his long career of civil rights and political activism.
Bethany Baptist Church of Brooklyn Pastor Rev. Dr. Adolphus C. Lacey PhD. received the Social Justice award. First Central Baptist Church Staten Island Senior Pastor Rev. Dr. Demetrius Carolina received the Faith Leader of the Year award; and Brooklyn Community Foundation President and CEO Dr. Jocelynn Rainey, the NTAC Brooklyn History award.
Congratulations to all of the awardees: NTAC Founder, President and CEO Rev. Dr. Valerie Oliver-Durrah; and the other event organizers for a truly spectacular event!
