Project Magis hosted its Second Annual Cocktail Reception to benefit the Catholic Charities Appeal of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, at the law offices of White and Williams LLP on Monday, October 7, 2019. 

The Honorable Kevin J. Carey (Ret.) was honored with the Inaugural 2019 Magis Award.


The Magis Award will be given to individuals in the Greater Philadelphia business community who, regardless of creed, have demonstrated respect, dignity, kindness, and humility toward others in the performance of their duties and in their profession. Honorees are committed to service rooted in solidarity and justice, increasing common good by doing more for others, and creating a better society and life for those around them.
