Night of Eloquence 2017
On Monday, May 8, 2017, the 18th Annual "Night of Eloquence" will take place at Nanina's in the Park in Belleville, NJ. As in years past, it will be a celebratory event recognizing outstanding individual and team student performances in the presentation of their "Be the Change" plans for bringing realistic, positive change to their communities.
The evening, which will once again be hosted by Stand & Deliver founder and president Steve Adubato, will highlight individual performers and a group of Stand & Deliver participants who will engage an audience of over 350 of their family members, peers, teachers and workshop leaders, as well as business and community leaders.
Additionally, the evening will honor two highly accomplished individuals who are role models for young people everywhere, particularly in our inner cities. This year the 2017 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Leadership Award will be bestowed upon Ryan P. Haygood, Esq., President & Chief Executive Officer, New Jersey Institute for Social Justice, and Michele Adubato, Chief Executive Officer, The North Ward Center.
