Freedman to be honored March 11.
With the dramatic increase in homelessness throughout the City, the benefit will support The Partnership's expanded efforts on behalf of homeless families and individuals throughout the five boroughs of New York City.
Freedman is a long-time supporter of The Partnership and a dedicated philanthropist committed to issues of social justice.
"Bob Freedman has been a tireless supporter of The Partnership, and has made a tremendous contribution to our organization," said Arnold S. Cohen, President and CEO of The Partnership for the Homeless. "He represents the best of what corporate New York has to offer."
"The mission of the Partnership for the Homeless truly exemplifies my value system," Freedman said. "Nothing could be more satisfying than working with a group that focuses on long-term strategies that address the root causes of homelessness and poverty."
The benefit will also feature the presentation of the Partners to End Homelessness Awards. This year's recipients are: Sen. Charles Schumer, Partner in Public Service; Lorna Blake, Executive Director of the Interest on Lawyers Accounts Fund, Partner in Social Justice; Margaret Shafer, Outreach Associate, Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, Partner in Community Service; JoJo Starbuck, World Class Figure Skater, Partner in Sports.
The benefit, an evening of dinner, awards, entertainment and a silent auction, will be held at the celebrated Puck Building in lower Manhattan. John Flaxman will be producing and directing a special music tribute to theater legend Hal Prince, an active supporter of The Partnership. The tribute, entitled "Broadway Babies," will feature Tony Award winner Debbie Gravitte performing classic songs from Prince's varied repertoire.
