Nonprofits Honored in Second Commitment to Care Awards
In keeping with our long history of involvement with community-based, nonprofit organizations in New York, we hosted the second "Commitment to Care Lecture & Award Series" in Harlem on May 6.
The program honors nonprofit organizations for the care, services and support they provide to New York City residents. EmblemHealth hosted the reception, lecture and awards ceremony, but the evening really belonged to the recipients, who received their awards from former New York Knicks star, Earl "The Pearl" Monroe. The event also gave us an opportunity to provide nonprofit leaders with valuable insights they can use to increase their impact on the communities they serve.
Honorees for the Commitment to Care Awards were recognized for:
Promoting the Success of Young Children
Harlem Children's Zone
Enriching the Creative Spirit of Children
Harlem School of the Arts
Building a Healthy Community through HIV/AIDS Prevention
Nurturing Harlem's Youth in Medicine

"EmblemHealth and these nonprofit organizations share an unwavering commitment to the Harlem community," said David Mahder, Vice President, Marketing & Communications and the event's master of ceremonies. "It's our honor to recognize their preserving spirit, dedication and contributions to the people they serve."
