Our First Annual Collective Awards Banquet that was held on Sunday, November 5th at the Marriott Hotel was a huge success. We had Senator Tim Kennedy attend and receive a Peacemaker Award from WNY Muslims. In addition, Raul Vazquez, M.D., Victoria Ross, and Rev. Stan Bratton, Ph.D. were also recipients of our Peacemaker Award. Several Humanitarian Awards were also given out by organizations such as ACCESS of WNY, GBUAHN, United Healthcare, ISNF, WNY Medical, Legal Aid Bureau of Buffalo, and more. There was a Puerto Rican dance performance by children from the El Batey Dance Center. We hope all of our guests enjoyed the event as much as we did, and we want to thank you so much for attending. Thank you to all of our staff and volunteers, the Marriott staff, and our sponsors – WNY Medical, United Healthcare, Manage Your Business, Your HWH, the Collective News, FMPU, GBUAHN, and the Marriott – for making this such a successful event. We will see you all next year!
