Event description


Join us to celebrate the end of spring and to honor four incredible women with our Good Person Awards. This year’s benefit will be held at the Cosmopolitan Club on Tuesday, June 12, from 6-8pm. We will have a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres and the evening will include a short program and a silent auction.

We will be honoring Lisa Chaney from Paul Hastings and the Simple Works Foundation’s Directors Naomi Marks, Vivienne Keegan, and Kuni Schmertzler for their incredible contributions to our organization and to the New York and Long Island community.

Lisa Chaney is a Finance Partner at Paul Hastings, LLP in the Real Estate Department. Lisa has been a champion of HousingPlus for many years; with her guidance, Paul Hastings has donated thousands of hours of pro bono legal services for a wide range of complex challenges HousingPlus has faced. Lisa Chaney and Paul Hastings have been instrumental in helping us create and grow a strong and vibrant agency.

Naomi Marks, Vivienne Keegan, and Kuni Schmertzler are directors of the Simple Works Foundation, which supports the health, wellness, and education of children and young adults. They have supported HousingPlus for many years, especially our summer camp for tenants’ children and our work to improve the criminal justice system for women.

We are so grateful for Lisa, Naomi, Vivienne, and Kuni’s support and thrilled to have a chance to thank them. Please join us on June 12!
