2021 Honorees: Chris Perry, William R. Guarinello and Deborah Norville

“Be the Light” is the theme of the 2021 HeartShare Virtual Gala and that’s because it’s your time to shine.

No doubt, 2020 was hard on everyone, even more so for those in HeartShare’s care—people with autism and other developmental disabilities. Covid-19 upended their lives, cutting them off from their loved ones, their cherished routines and the outside world.

On Thursday, April 15, at 7 p.m. (ET), HeartShare invites you to Be the Light in their lives, the light at the end of the tunnel, the light that never goes out. The Gala will stream live at a URL to be announced.

Join us as we toast the achievements of three remarkable honorees who are committed to helping individuals of all abilities live independent lives: Chris Perry, President of Global Sales, Marketing and Client Solutions, Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc.; William R. Guarinello, President and Chief Executive Officer, HeartShare Human Services of New York; and Deborah Norville, Anchor, “Inside Edition.”

Co-hosting the 2021 HeartShare Virtual Gala, the nonprofit’s largest annual fundraiser, will be “Good Day New York” co-host Rosanna Scotto and Q104.3 DJ Jim Kerr, both of whom are HeartShare Board Members.
