Street Success

| April 29, 2016 | Parties

A record-breaking crowd of more than 800 attendees assembled at The Ritz-Carlton to celebrate the nonprofit N Street Village and commit to ending homelessness. The gala raised more than $1 million—more than ever in the history of the gala.

Special musical guest and Tony Award-winner Jennifer Holliday performed “And I’m Telling You” from the Broadway hit Dreamgirls. Renowned actor and dedicated social activist Richard Gere presented the Steinbruck Awards to three N Street Village clients: Shaketa Barnes (Gere accepted on her behalf), Courtney Hayes and Rose Shaw.

The food was provided by The Ritz-Carlton, with wine donated by the Wine Institute. “N Street Village is a good place—this is a healing place,” said Gere. “I’ve seen organizations like N Street Village all over, but this is the best.” Spoken like a true officer and gentleman! -Photography by Tony Brown
