New York [May 21, 2014]  Supporters of Inner-City Scholarship Fund raised
$1 million at the 38th Annual Friends Committee Gala on Tuesday, May 13th. Over 400 guests attended the event at Cipriani 42nd Street in Manhattan to benefit Inner-City in its dedication to providing tuition assistance for low-income students attending inner-city Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of New York.


His Eminence, Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York; and Gala Chair, co-anchor of Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Martha MacCallum attended the event where Fox News Channel analyst Peter Johnson, Jr. served as the Master of Ceremonies.


“A quality education is the most powerful tool a child can have,” said Susan George, Executive Director of Inner-City.  “Seeing this room so full of people committed to providing educational opportunities to our students, is something I – and the thousands of students Inner-City supports – are very thankful for.” 


Former scholarship recipient Richard Recchia, who graduated from high school in 2004 and is now an Emmy Award winning producer at CBS Sports, gave a moving speech about how a Catholic education and the support he received from Inner-City helped shape his future.  “I spent my childhood living in a public housing project complex in Manhattan, with my mother and three siblings, in a cramped one-bedroom apartment – finances were tight,” said Recchia.  “Without Inner-City Scholarship Fund and the support of my sponsor, I would not be standing here tonight and more importantly, I don’t know if I would have developed the desire to dream and aspire for what I have been blessed with today.”


In addition to dinner and dancing, guests enjoyed a performance by Maria Jose Nolasco, an 8th grade student at Immaculate Conception Elementary School in the Bronx, who sang Vivir mi Vida by Marc Anthony and Colors of the Wind by Stephen Schwartz.


About Inner-City Scholarship Fund

Inner-City Scholarship Fund was founded in 1971 by the late Terence Cardinal Cooke and a group of prominent executives of many religious beliefs. Inner-City provides tuition assistance to over 7,500 students (92% minority and 33% non-Catholic) in 79 inner-city Catholic schools in Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island. An astonishing 98% percent of seniors attending inner-city Catholic high schools graduate, and 96% pursue college at some of the finest universities in the nation.
