On Wednesday, April 1st, the NYC Mission Society hosted its annual Champions for Children Gala at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City. The gala raised nearly $600,000 to support the Mission Society’s programs and services that help youth and families in the city’s most under-served communities to break the cycle of poverty and achieve success. This year, the NYC Mission Society honored two Champions for Children: Colbert Narcisse, Managing Director and Global Head of Alternative Investments at Morgan Stanley and Hollis Russell, Partner of Ackerman, Levine, Cullen, Brickman & Limmer, LLP.
