A Champion of Hope
“Jerry has a strong record of community involvement,” said Bob Brown, President & CEO of Catholic Charities.
Catholic Charities Community Services will present its Champion of Hope Award to Jerry Colangelo, chairman of USA Basketball and partner of JDM Partners, LLC, at Catholic Charities’ Paths to Hope breakfast on Wednesday, May 15 at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix. The award recognizes Colangelo’s contributions to improving the lives of the community’s most vulnerable.
“We all know about his achievement in sports, but more importantly, he has been an active leader in making Arizona a better place, particularly for the individuals we serv,” Bob Brown says.
“We are proud to recognize his legacy—his contributions to helping our community’s most vulnerable—by presenting him with our Champion of Hope Award,” Brown said.
Catholic Charities has been providing paths to hope for the Central and Northern Arizona’s most vulnerable since 1933. Each path is as unique as those the agency serves and is made possible through volunteers, donors and partners.
The community is invited to the inspirational morning to learn about the work of Catholic Charities and how to become part of the hope that is rebuilding lives and strengthening Arizona communities.
Catholic Charities helps people of all faiths, backgrounds and abilities to permanently improve their lives.
The Paths to Hope breakfast is sponsored by Bug & Weed Mart, First National Bank of Arizona, MercyCare and Americare Hospice and Palliative Care.
Registration begins at 7 a.m. with the breakfast and program lasting from 7:30-8:15 a.m. The breakfast is free, but reservations are required by April 24. Space is limited. To register or sponsor the event, contact Donna Rodgers, development manager, email@example.com or 602.650.4827.
