2018 Celebration of the Power of Possible Gala
"Your aspirations are your possibilities." — Samuel Johnson
There is no greater gift than to serve—to make a difference in the lives of people in need. Thanks to the support of our Celebration of the Power of Possible Gala from our communtiy of stakeholders, many more young people and adults are on the path to economic and social wellbeing.
The theme of this year’s Gala was Innovation to Impact—a recognition of the energy and commitment that drive The Fedcap Group every day to deliver proven services, solve systemic problems and demonstrate the Power of Possible. A spirit of community and common cause permeated the event on Monday, November 26th at Cipriani in Manhattan, as colleagues and friends from across our agencies gathered to celebrate a year of impact and innovation. The Gala marked the launch of The Fedcap Group, a significant milestone in our collective history. Our growing international footprint of agencies now impacts the lives of more than 300,000 people annually, delivering measurable shifts in economic self-sufficiency for individuals in need. We are stronger together and united in our mission-driven purpose.
The evening was rich in highlights. Our beloved colleague Peter Panken received The Leo Mayer Award for Distinguished Service. Peter retired this year from the practice of law, and we are thrilled that he plans to continue his longstanding service to Fedcap. Longtime partner and supporter Mutual of America was presented with our Outstanding Corporate Services Partner Award. A special moment of recognition honored Tom Moran, former president, chairman and CEO of MOA who passed away in August. Tom was a great philanthropist and longtime champion of The Fedcap Group. He will be greatly missed.
We honored remarkable individuals whose resilience and courage allowed them to overcome significant barriers and put themselves on the path to realizing their full potential. We heard from board members and leaders from across The Fedcap Group and distinguished guests including John Greed, president and CEO of Mutual America. Thank you for supporting the Power of Possible. These powerful words serve as the foundation for what we do every single day across The Fedcap Group.
When you believe that achieving a dream is possible, and when you are inspired by those around you to aim high, dreams become reality.
