2019 Free to Dream Benefit
Every year we have the pleasure of celebrating our youth and the accomplishments of Liberty’s Promise, as well as our dearest supporters at our annual fundraiser.
John Greeley Award
Each year we honor a community member for their dedication to Liberty’s Promise, young immigrants, and the values of our shared American democracy.
John Greeley grew up in Manhattan and was a track star in high school. He joined the Marines and served in Vietnam, later to become a Marine Reserve Officer. He went on to become a practicing attorney in New York City. John had a great love for his country; he was a great patriot. He was also a man of great integrity, decency, and character. He was a great fan of the mission of Liberty’s Promise, but sadly did not live to see us get to where we are today, therefore we honor his memory and his great love of America with this award.
