2023 Annual Valentine Gala
DG & Gini Elmore
- Passionate about caring for New Yorkers in need, DG and Gini Elmore have supported The Bowery Mission for more than a decade with Gini serving on the board for almost 9 years. The Elmores have consistently involved their six children in giving decisions, teaching them from a young age about the power of generosity. Read More
Today, the second generation of Elmores continue to demonstrate leadership in philanthropy, with one son serving on The Bowery Mission’s Associate Board for over two years on the fundraising and advocacy committee.
“The Bowery Mission is one of the ministries we are focused on as a family. We see the transformational work as vital to the focus of our family foundation.” — DG Elmore
Charles & Marianne Veth
- Chuck and Marianne Veth have supported The Bowery Mission for more than 30 years. Shortly after founding his own IT company, Chuck was instrumental in equipping The Bowery Mission with its first computer network. He has now served on the board for 18 years. Read More
The Veth children were encouraged to practice generosity from a young age, and their first gifts to the Mission were bags of quarters saved, and money earned from shoveling snow for neighbors. Today, the second generation of Veths remain active supporters of The Bowery Mission through volunteering and events.
“We're just a small part of what God has been doing at The Bowery Mission for such a long time. I feel so humbled that God ever gave us the opportunity to be involved. I think it's one of the greatest privileges of our lives.” — Marianne Veth
We hope you’ll join us on Tuesday, February 14th to celebrate The Bowery Mission’s life-changing work with an evening of dinner, dancing and connecting with fellow supporters.
The Bowery Mission exists to promote the flourishing of New Yorkers overcoming homelessness and marginalization. Since the 1870s, we have been a place of welcome, care and healing. With an emphasis on holistic care that nourishes bodies, minds, hearts and souls, we partner with guests and clients as they rediscover the fullest expression of who God intended them to be.

The Annual Valentine Gala raises funds for The Bowery Mission’s essential programs, which have served New Yorkers experiencing homelessness and hunger every day since the 1870s. Each meal and night of shelter serves as an invitation to further life-transforming care experienced within a loving community of support. Even during these uncertain times, our guests and clients continue to grow in confidence and self-esteem, reconnect with family, deepen personal relationships and secure vocational and housing needs. The Bowery Mission also offers year-round opportunities for enrichment through Mont Lawn City Camp, culminating in summer camp for hundreds of children in the Poconos Region of Pennsylvania.
