His Eminence, Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, rang the Opening Bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on Monday, November 26, 2012 following the Cardinal’s Committee for Charity (CCC) 2012 Wall Street Breakfast. The NYSE hosted the breakfast for the Wall Street division of the Cardinal’s Committee for Charity, which provides financial resources and counsel to help solve the problems of New Yorkers in need, non-Catholics and Catholics alike.
The event included a conversation between Larry A. Silverstein, President and CEO of Silverstein Properties, Inc., and Daniel Henninger, Deputy Editor of The Wall Street Journal Editorial Page on the future development of the financial district.
The annual breakfast, which took place in the historic Board Room of the New York Stock Exchange, has raised during its eight-year history nearly $4 million of much-needed funds to support families and individuals in greatest need who are served by The Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York.
