PINCK & CO. ATTENDS THE 'LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND GALA' TO SUPPORT THE NEW ENGLAND CENTER FOR HOMELESS VETERANS
[Thursday, November 6, 2014] The twelfth annual “Leave No One Behind Gala” was held at the Seaport Hotel last night to benefit the New England Center for Homeless Veterans. There was a reception and silent auction, followed by a live auction and dinner.
During the program a Battlefield Citation award was presented to US Air Force Veteran and former NECHV client Barbara Barnes, and The Home Depot was recognized as this year’s Corporate Partner Honoree. The annual Distinguished Service for Veterans Award was be presented posthumously to Brian Brooks. New England Cable News Anchor Mike Nikitas were Master of Ceremonies for the event.
The New England Center for Homeless Veterans is a nationally recognized leader in the initiative to end homelessness among Veterans and one of the most effective private Veteran transition programs in the country. Leave No One Behind is an annual fundraising event that is held to support the Center’s education and training center, capital needs and clinical support services. The event is a celebration of the successful transition of many Veterans and a means of ensuring the future of the Center’s services to those who follow. Unfortunately, that need is growing every day, driven by a new generation of Veterans returning from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
