The Eddy Bishai Trio will be performing on Nov. 19 for The Great Thanksgiving Banquet at the New York City Rescue Mission. 

This event has increasingly been a successful attempt to reach out to the city's forgotten population by providing them with Gospel entertainment and a banquet-style, turkey dinner on elegantly set tables. It also provides an opportunity for New Yorkers who have been given much to share their plenty with those who have very little.

The NYCRM generally serves about 1,000 banquet style meals to their guests: women with children living in city shelters, individuals living on the streets and in parks, homeless veterans, and others with special needs.

You may support this event financially or by volunteering.  Please visit www.nycrescue.org
