This year’s Living United Heroes Luncheon will be sponsored by the Jersey City Medical Center. It will bring together 200 business and civic leaders to celebrate our work. We will honor Dr. Sue Henderson, President of New Jersey City University, and Daryl Harrison Rand, Chair of the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce, with the Mary T. Norton Award, our highest honor. We will initiate new members into our Tocqueville Society, which recognizes major individual donors. For more information on the event, click here.
