The Piedmont Triad Office of Catholic Charities hosted their 11th Annual Partners in Hope Benefit in Winston-Salem on February 27, 2014.  More than 600 people attended the event and helped to raise $214,000 for services that Catholic Charities provides in and around the Winston-Salem area.

Thank you to our donors, sponsors and participants for partnering with Catholic Charities to provide life-changing services to the Piedmont Triad Region.

Because of your partnership:

  • 199 people received direct assistance when faced with an urgent crisis due to a job loss, a health issue, or a problem that threatened safety or housing.
  • 1,049 direct counseling services helped to save marriages, strengthen families, and transform lives by helping those coping with crisis, trauma, and anxiety.
  • 68 families with babies born to teen parents received support and parenting assistance. Of the 10 high school seniors, all of them graduated, and 8 went on to college or trade school.
  • 147 families with teens in crisis received ongoing support to cope and thrive.
  • 115,510 pounds of food and personal items were distributed to 3,488 people. All were invited to visit the pantry every month throughout the year. Half of the visitors were vulnerable children and the elderly.
  • 18 women were assisted to choose life for their baby.
  • 495 people received help with legal immigration services.
  • 15 families were helped through adoption services.

Bill Lawler was the Master of Ceremonies and the Reverend Monsignor Mauricio W. West, Vicar General and Chancellor of the Diocese of Charlotte, gave the welcome and blessing.   The Partners in Hope Award was presented to the Most Reverend Bishop William G. Curlin, Bishop Emeritus Diocese of Charlotte.  From now on, the award will be called the Bishop William G. Curlin Award.

Reverend Monsignor Anthony J. Marcaccio, Pastor of St. Pius the Tenth Catholic Church, and Reverend Brian J. Cook, Board Representative of CCDOC and Pastor of St. Leo the Great Catholic Church, presented the award along with Catholic Charities Triad Regional Advisory Board Chair Kathryn Premo and Executive Director/CEO of CCDOC Dr. Gerard A. Carter.

Thank you to our 2014 sponsors for helping us to surpass our goal of $200,000.
