Black Tie International:
Catholic Charities 2016 Gala
 

CATHOLIC CHARITIES GALA BENEFIT
 TO HONOR
STEPHEN C. FRIEDHEIM OF CYRUS CAPITAL PARTNERS
AND J. TOMILSON HILL OF BLACKSTONE

 

 His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan and the Board of Trustees of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York will honor Stephen C. Friedheim, CIO and Founder, Cyrus Capital Partners and J. Tomilson Hill, President and CEO of Blackstone’s Hedge Fund Solutions Group at its Gala Benefit at The Waldorf-Astoria on Wednesday, March 9 at 6:30 p.m.

“Our annual gala highlights the critical role Catholic Charities plays in building a better New York for those in need,” said Executive Director, Monsignor Kevin Sullivan.  “Our ability to help New Yorkers - non Catholics and Catholics alike – is enhanced because of the generosity of our honorees and those who support this event.  Simply put, the monies raised allow us to provide more help and create more hope for our neighbors who are struggling.”  

The annual black tie gala will once again convene a dynamic group of New Yorkers from the worlds of business, philanthropy, culture, fashion, law, media, politics and religion, all who share a deep concern for the well-being of their fellow New Yorkers. The event raises more than $2 million annually.

Lynda Baquero, consumer reporter for NBC4 New York, will serve as Mistress of Ceremonies. Award-winning actress and singer Stephanie J. Block, known for her work in Wicked, The Boy from Oz, 9 to 5 and The Mystery of Edwin Drood, will perform live.

Honoree Stephen C. Freidheim is the Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Cyrus Capital Partners.  He serves on the Board of Directors of Virgin America Inc. and Peterson Institute for International Economics. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and Chatham House. He is a trustee of the United States Olympic Committee and is a Vice Chairman of Children’s Home & Aid Society of Illinois.  For the past decade, Steve has been a Patron of the Incarnation School in the Bronx, where his wife Amandine has also been an art history teacher.

"Catholic Charities is an essential part of the fabric of this great city." Steve Freidheim explains, "It is the support and hope for so many New Yorkers in need of food and shelter; for children and youths in need of a family, foster care and backing; for immigrants and refugees who arrive in this great city with nowhere to turn; for families in crisis; and for the many New Yorkers of all faiths who’ve unfortunately fallen on hard times.  I'm delighted to support and introduce Catholic Charities to all my friends, who love this city as I do."

Fellow honoree J. Tomilson Hill is President and Chief Executive Officer of Blackstone’s Hedge Fund Solutions Group, a Vice Chairman of Blackstone and a member of the Board of Directors of the firm’s general partner. He serves on the Board of the Our Lady Queen of Angels school in Harlem, which Pope Francis chose as the one school he visited during his historic papal trip to the U.S. last fall. He is the Chairman of Lincoln Center Theater, has served as Chairman of the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, serves on the Board of Directors of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Telluride Foundation, the Advantage Testing Foundation, Patria Investment Limited, OpenPeak Inc. and Advantage Testing, Inc., and is also a member of the Advisory Board of Christie’s.

“I’ve always admired Catholic Charities collaborative work and the difference they make in communities throughout the city, but particularly those where the need is greatest,” said Hill. “I am proud to lend my support and look forward to partnering with Catholic Charities in the years ahead.”

The Gala Benefit on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 begins at 6:30 PM at the Waldorf Astoria, 301 Park Avenue, New York City.
