Catholic Charities Gala 2021
June 2021. Virtual
Empire joined Catholic Charities of Archdiocese of New York once again to produce the Catholic Charities Gala 2021 hosted by Lynda Baquero, NBC 4, New York celebrating a Renewed Spirit of Hope. The program was livestreamed on a sleek and classic-themed microsite for a virtual audience, underscoring the incredible initiatives and members of Catholic Charities that support underserved communities throughout the greater New York area.
Empire worked alongside Catholic Charities to develop and produce an engaging script, original video production and run of show for the program featuring His Eminence, Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York and Monsignor Kevin Sullivan, Executive Director of Catholic Charities, honoring Frank Bisignano, President, Chief Executive Officer, and Member of the Board of Directors, Fiserv, Inc., for his supportive and continued partnership with Catholic Charities in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Highlighting community and youth services, the evening incorporated testimonials and interviews from program directors, volunteers, youth advocates, imagery from community centers and emergency food programs, the stories of those impacted by the organization’s work.
The program also featured a tribute video to Frank Bisignano which included interviews from his daughters highlighting Frank’s character, before His Eminence presented the Deus Caritas Est award, and a Catholic Charities Centennial Campaign Video thanking donors for their continued support.
Empire’s scope of work included script writing, development of run of show, remote recordings, four on site video productions at locations across New York, video editing, speaker advancement, live stream, program graphics, and microsite design. Additionally, Empire delivered five shortened video assets, one which would be used for an in-person gathering of vaccinated individuals at the Cardinal’s home the night of the event.
Empire Entertainment is honored to work with Catholic Charities of Archdiocese of New York to help support the vital work they do, especially during unprecedented times.
