2013 Spring Cocktail Party
More than 250 guests attended Fedcap’s 2nd annual Spring Cocktail Party this week at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse at 70 Lincoln Plaza. Guests included boards of directors of Fedcap and ReServe, supporters, Fedcap’s Leadership Council, business partners, Fedcap home health aides, college and high school students, staff and volunteers.
The event honored Fedcap’s Leadership Council, a group of individuals who provide substantial support to our work, and also two inspiring ladies in our Home Care and ReServe READY programs.
Vietta Horton, pictured with her family on the left, a Fedcap Home Health Aide, received the Amalia Betanzos Distinguished Service Award for her outstanding service during Hurricane Sandy. A Fedcap Home Health Aide since 1994, Ms. Horton cared for her patient during and following Hurricane Sandy for six days and without electricity or running water. The Amalia Betanzos award was named for the late executive director of Wildcat Service Corporation, which combined with Fedcap in 2011.
Suwon Smith, a ReServist College Coach, received the Excellence in Education Award for her exemplary dedication to helping students and their families overcome barriers and enroll in college. For four years, Suwon has served upwards of 30 hours per week at underserved NYC High Schools helping students apply for college and financial aid, many of whom would be the first in their families to attend and graduate from college.
