2021 Summer Social
Thank you for a successful evening!
Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2021 Summer Social fundraising event a tremendous success. Over 200 guests gathered virtually or at viewing parties around New York City and raised over $45,000 to continue the fight against homelessness. These funds provide compassionate care to each guest who walks through The Bowery Mission’s Red Doors.
"When the pandemic hit, I wanted to be even more involved through the Associate Board, to serve some of New York's most vulnerable people and give back to my community. I am so grateful to serve alongside such passionate individuals and an incredible team at The Bowery Mission. Every meal, every dollar and every smile counts."
— Shirley Hsieh Pantazis, Co-host and Associate Board member

"I’d also like to share the amazing accomplishments of the entire Associate Board throughout the year.... This year alone, over 40 Associate Board volunteers have logged more than 100 volunteer hours serving our community members during this pandemic, when volunteers were sometimes scarce! This is truly a special group, and we are deeply grateful for your partnership with us."
— James Winans, CEO
The Bowery Mission Associate Board
Wait...what is The Bowery Mission Associate Board?
The Bowery Mission Associate Board is a group of emerging leaders who dedicate their time, talents, networks and resources to raise awareness and support for The Bowery Mission as it seeks to be the most effective provider of compassionate care and life transformation in New York City. Each Associate Board member is a committed supporter and thoughtful advocate for The Bowery Mission.
So...what does the Associate Board do?
Members have the unique opportunity to serve as advocates for The Bowery Mission's important work, while advancing personal, professional and leadership goals. The Associate Board meets regularly, volunteers often and hosts events, all to help The Bowery Mission provide more and better services to people experiencing homelessness.
Why do members get involved?
Most members share a similar story of why they first got involved: a call to be part of the solution to the homelessness crisis — something we witness daily on our commute and in our neighborhoods. Want to be part of the solution, too?
In Support of Compassionate Care Programs
Funds raised during the Summer Social event will provide compassionate care for each guest who comes to The Bowery Mission's Red Doors — meals, safe shelter, clean clothing and dignifying showers, which are needed now more than ever for our most vulnerable neighbors.
