Project Magis has canceled this year’s in-person Third Annual Cocktail Reception scheduled for October 5th to keep everyone safe. While this year’s event is canceled, the harsh reality of the pandemic’s impact on our communities has not abated.  It is important to keep our focus on those in need, as COVID-19 continues to escalate hunger and homelessness in Philadelphia. If you or your firm are able to help support Project Magis through the Catholic Charities Appeal, please consider a firm gift or a personal contribution – no amount is too small and it is easy to donate, please click here

Planning for a 2021 event will resume after the turn of the new year – thank you to Cozen O’Connor for offering to host the 2020 event and committing to host the 2021 event. We look forward to when we can safely meet again and hold events to continue our support for the less fortunate in our community through the Catholic Charities Appeal of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

Thanks to our generous sponsors and White and Williams hospitality, the Fall Reception of 2019 raised over $120,000 for the Catholic Charities Appeal.  The Inaugural Magis Award was given to The Hon. Kevin J. Carey (Ret.). 100% of the proceeds from the event went to support the Appeal.

In 2018, Project Magis hosted its first Inaugural Fall Reception. Thanks to the hospitality of Blank Rome LLP and our generous sponsors, this reception raised over $117,000 for the Catholic Charities Appeal. 100% of the proceeds from the event went directly to support the 4 Schools of Special Education and Catholic Social Services.
