T Howard Diversity Awards Dinner Postponed

The T. Howard Foundation has postponed Wednesday’s annual Diversity Awards fundraising dinner due to inclement weather, according to the diversity organization’s Board of Directors.

The 25th annual dinner, which was set to take place at New York City’s Cipriani Wall Streetvenue, will be rescheduled later this year, although the organization has yet to determine a date. Representatives from the board said worsening weather conditions from today’s Nor’easter snowstorm forced the postponement of the event.
