Spirit of the City was conceived in the 1970s to celebrate New York City and the people who embody its spirit when it was facing tremendous economic and social challenges. From Felix Rohatyn, Mario Cuomo and 9/11 rescuers to Michael Bloomberg and Judy Collins, Spirit of the City celebrates the civic, political and religions leaders; the artists, philanthropists and public servants who serve and inspire this great city. Proceeds from the evening fund the Cathedral's outreach programs, civic forums, and liturgical and cultural events, and the care and maintenance of the Cathedral itself.
