As the scheduled date for Interfaith Ministries’ Tapestry Gala came closer, it became clear the in-person event couldn’t happen due to the coronavirus pandemic. IM president and CEO Martin B. Cominsky decided to proceed, virtually. The online experience was complemented by a gala-style dinner, delivered by IM’s Meals on Wheels drivers. Four hundred supporters participated, dining from home in the requested attire – PJs or loungewear – and raised more than $525,000 for IM’s services. The program included a performance of Home from The Wiz and of Bridge Over Troubled Water. It concluded with funny video bloopers, including board chair Franklin J. Harberg Jr., waving goodbye in his bathrobe. See “Homey Event: Interfaith Ministries Hosts Virtual Gala” for more details, photos and video.
