On Thursday, April 28th, the O’Callaghan Family were honoured by The Family Center at their annual Spring Soiree with the Sustainer’s award. The event took place at the Tribeca Rooftop in New York City.
The Family Center is an organization which offers a unique program of social and legal services, including guidance on health care and wellness, to New Yorkers struggling with a family crisis or loss.
For nearly two decades, the O’Callaghan family — Tony & Patti, with their children Tony (LT), Julie, and Bonnie — has been dedicated to the well-being of Family Center children and youth. In the summer of 2005, Tony hosted the first-ever Central Park Picnic & Softball Game for the Family Center’s clients’ children and families. Come winter, the roles of Santa and his elves are always held by O’Callaghan family members at The Family Center Annual Holiday Party. Sisters Bonnie and Julie have served as TFC Leadership Council members for many years. Bonnie also served as Co-Chair to their first Harvest Ball in 2017. Tony, Patti and their children attribute their drive to give back to the O’Callaghan Family Patriarch, R.A. (Tony) O’Callaghan, who passed away in 2021 after a life of service to others.
The O’Callaghan’s have been long-time generous supporters of the Shafik Gabr Foundation.
This April, the Shafik Gabr Foundation was proud to provide Platinum sponsorship in honour of the O’Callaghan family at The Family Center’s award evening.
