Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets
Thursday, February 20th – 8:00 pm
Catholic Charities Night with the Sixers was held on Thursday, February 20, 2020. Thanks to the generosity of CCA donors, over 150 tickets were sold! A portion of all proceeds from ticket sales went directly to our amazing CCA beneficiaries.
Jim Amato, Secretary for Catholic Human Services, along with several Catholic Social Services beneficiaries were honored on-court prior to the start of the game. Jim oversees Catholic Social Services which is the largest beneficiary of the Catholic Charities Appeal. Last year, through various CSS programs over 950,000 people were positively impacted! We are so grateful to Jim for joining us for CCA Night with the Sixers!

“When all else had failed, and I had no hope, and no inspiration, no vision for tomorrow; when I thought all else had failed, I walked through the doors of the Good Shepherd Program and a burden was lifted off my shoulders. I knew there was light at the end of the tunnel. God showed me there is hope, inspiration, and a better way to live.” – Levi, Good Shepherd Program resident.
