McQuade, Chief Executive Officer, Citibank and Stephen J. Brogan, Managing

“The Catholic Charities Annual Gala permits us to create stronger partnerships
among New Yorkers,” stated Executive Director Msgr. Kevin Sullivan. “Our
outstanding honorees, their colleagues and friends along with generous
Catholic Charities donors come together to ensure that New Yorkers in need –
non Catholics and Catholics alike – are helped with meeting basic human needs
so that they might live their lives in greater dignity.”

This signature black tie dinner will convene a dynamic group of New Yorkers
from the worlds of business, philanthropy, culture, fashion, law, media,
politics and religion who share a deep concern for the well-being of our
fellow New Yorkers in need. It raises more than $2 million annually.

leading roles in several Broadway productions including Miss Saigon and Cats,
will perform live.

served as Vice Chairman and President of Merrill Lynch Banks (U.S.) and
previously had been President at Freddie Mac, Bank of America and Fleet Boston
Financial. He is a Trustee to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the
American Ireland Fund.

“Tonight is a celebration of the terrific work Catholic Charities does every
year to ensure that our neediest New Yorkers, regardless of faith, get the
support they need to improve their lives,” said Mr. McQuade. “I’m gratified
and humbled to be recognized, but tonight is about shining a spotlight on the
enormous positive impact Catholic Charities has on our city.”

less fortunate," said Mr. Brogan.
