At our event this year we had the first screening of a short documentary by cinematographer Nick Hartanto, featuring the children, families, and staff of the Center for Family Life. This beautiful documentary is part of the event video so if you would like to watch, head to the link above. 

We had several honorees, and so much to celebrate at our event. This year we achieved a decades-long dream and became a fully independent not-for-profit organization, and we honored two outstanding individuals, Jessica Cohen from Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, and Jason Schlessel from Norton Rose Fulbright, who made extraordinary contributions to our work at the Center for Family Life in this, our inaugural year.

We also honored the memory of Deborah Foley, a long-time supporter of the Center for Family Life who passed this time last year. 

Deborah (Debbie) Foley, Vice President at Prudential Securities, was a member of the Center for Family Life Board from 1996 through 2007. Debbie was important to the development of the Center in so many ways, but especially as our partner in CFL’s Life Lines production at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. She was treasured by the Center’s founders Sister Mary Paul Janchill and Sister Geraldine Tobia and loved by all of her colleagues on the Board. 
We remember Deb with deep affection and are grateful for the contribution that she made to our work in the early years of the Center

We are so grateful for everyone who made the work we do at Center for Family Life possible this year, and we are so happy to have the chance to celebrate and share that work with you. Thank you, for being with us through another remarkable year!
