It was standing room only this year at St. Vincent de Paul’s Restoring Hope Breakfast on Nov. 22 at The Phoenician in Scottsdale. More than 1,400 attended the annual fundraiser that gathers people to remember the kindness at work at SVdP and the generosity alive in the Valley community. This year’s program focused on the partnership of SVdP with Arizona State University and the power of service to not only help people when they fall, but also lift them up to their greatest potential. See some of the top moments and speakers from the inspiring event in the video above.
At the end of the program, SVdP Associate Executive Director Shannon Clancy shared with each of the 1,400 attendees a surprise gift from a donor — a rolled $20 bill at each place setting meant for each guest to pay it forward and experience generosity the SVdP way.
