2021 Golden Heart Awards

This year’s dinner will be an intimate in-person event as we continue to prioritize the safety of our guest and staff in the COVID-19 pandemic. We are excited to be honoring Don Lemon and Billy Porter this year!

You can support this important event either in-person or virtually. We will be hosting our in-person option at The Glasshouse (660 12th Avenue) in New York City, a spectacular 75,000 square foot waterfront space with breathtaking views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline. This year, we are partnering with Eater to curate some of the most iconic eats from across New York City. For the protection of all guests, guests need to be fully vaccinated, proof of vaccination is required, dining will occur with strictly limited capacity and stringent safety protocols in place. You can also participate by purchasing virtual tickets. If you choose to participate virtually, you will receive a link to the program as well as a curated box filled with delicious surprises to join in the celebration from the comfort of your own home.

God’s Love We Deliver was founded at the height of the HIV/AIDs pandemic, and we’re risen to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since last March, God’s Love has added 6,000+ new clients to the program. God’s Love is now cooking and home-delivering more than 10,000 meals every weekday. Your support is urgent and crucial.
