BENEFITING: MARION P THOMAS CHARTER SCHOOL FOUNDATION INC
Who says a good man is hard to find? For the past 12 years, Newark, NJ-based Marion P. Thomas Charter School (MPTCS) has honored more than a few good men during their "Fathers for our Children" awards ceremony and scholarship fundraiser. This annual event was created to pay tribute to men who serve as positive male role models "father figures" to Newark youth. This year's honorees are: Ras J. Baraka, Mayor of Newark, NJ; Rev. John Baker of Cross and Crown Christian Church and Preston Pinkett of City National Bank. Additionally, for the first time this year, MPTCS will pay homage to an outstanding company - Goldman Sachs Social Impact Fund/Margaret Anadu, Managing Director, UIG. Honorees are selected based on their commitment to encouraging, enlightening and inspiring our youth to succeed and the outstanding company was selected based on their overall impact on the Newark community. Proceeds from the event fund college scholarships for MPTCS graduating seniors. Help us reward students who have diligently worked to further their education. Make an investment in their future, while honoring those who have made a difference in their lives!
