Honoree: Frank Luna

Honoree Frank Luna: He caught and gave back the first homerun ball of NYY Andrew Velasquez with the same sense of compassion and integrity that drives him everyday to protect and enrich the lives of those most vulnerable I our communities, especially our children.

And his best captures moments and creates opportunity effectuated in grass roots initiatives and nationally recognized efforts, that make a measurable difference in tangible need, but more importantly an immeasurable difference in the hearts of the children he humbly seeks to serve.
