It was a a night of great expectations at Hotel Monaco as movers and shaker from across the
city and across the country came together to celebrate the Community Angel Awards
supporting under privileged youth.

Community Angel Foundation (a 501c3 non-profit organization)
was founded by Veniece Newton (standing with Roberto Clemente Jr.) who had one simple goal – every child
deserves to smile during the holidays. What started as a gesture of
kindness by providing toys to hundreds of children, evolved into the CAF
mission to “Educate , Encourage and Empower Youth” to become the next
generation of leaders. Veniece realized a gift is not enough to change a
life. To change lives, you must change minds and get to the heart of
the communities that are in need!
