Staff member Wilflo Fontus was honored on January 10, 2017 as part of the St. Luke Foundation for Haiti's 2017 New York City benefit party, hosted by Kenneth Cole, Adriana Lima, and Jozy Altidore. You can read more about Wilflo's story in this reflection. He asked us to express his thanks to the foundation's friend and supporters:
I was very excited to go to New York two and half years after being in Pennsylvania in the hospital after being victimized by a gang in Haiti. This special event helped me get my smile back because I met some great people who made me feel my life always makes sense. Thank you to the St. Luke Foundation for Haiti team, and to Adriana Lima, Kenneth Cole, and Jozy Altidore for honoring me. And thank you always for your support of the St. Luke Foundation for Haiti.
