Center for Family Life in Sunset Park


Gala Fundraiser & Cocktail Party

Please join us for our annual Fundraiser Gala & Cocktail Party as we celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship, leadership and community development! Each year, Center for Family Life honors those who, through their achievements, contribute to our work of strengthening the Sunset Park community and empowering its residents, and presents them with the “Celebrating Community” Award.

We are proud to welcome this year’s honorees, Cooperatives United for Sunset Park (represented by Sara Castillo, Elvira Rojas, Yuri Sanchez, and Monica Valerio) and Jacques Torres, individuals whose success as immigrant entrepreneurs has lead our neighborhood’s economic revival and inspired its residents to believe that they, too, can “make it in Sunset Park.” A leadership group representing the magnificent coops of Sunset Park who together have built significant business ventures right here in our neighborhood.
