Among the bright lights, and the hustle and bustle of New York City, a slice of Philadelphia was present during the AL DÍA Foundation's PA Society reception in the heart of Manhattan. Just off of Broadway, Victor's Cafe became the epicenter of many journalistic minds.

The recipients were Ashley Edwards of Google News initiative, Dann Cuellar of 6ABC News, Alex Jakana of The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Chris Brennan of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Members of the AL DÍA News team, Editor Nigel Thompson, Reporter Jensen Toussaint and Business Development Director Martin Alfaro were also recognized for their hard work and contributions to the event.
Among those in attendance were Cynthia Figueroa, Deputy Mayor for the City of Philadelphia; Reverend Bonnie Camarda, Director of Partnerships for The Salvation Army; Donald Guy Generals, Ed.D, President of Community College of Philadelphia; PA State Senator Sharif Street and Bill Ryan, Vice President of Public Relations and Public Affairs for the Einstein Healthcare Network.
