The 2020 Mike McQuaid Virtual I Am Home Breakfast was a Great Success!

Event Summary

Nearly 400 viewers tuned in to this year’s virtual Breakfast event that celebrated Mike McQuaid’s life and contributions, client successes and the 15th anniversary of the Human Services Campus (HSC). Avondale Toyota was the hour-long virtual event Signature Sponsor. A total of 40 sponsors supported the event.

Hosted in an ESPN-like production by HSC Executive Director Amy Schwabenlender and HSC Board Chair Jonathan Koppell, Dean of the Watts College of Public Service & Community Solutions at Arizona State University, the event featured a video tribute to campus founder and former board president McQuaid, who passed away in July from COVID-19, a 15th anniversary look-back video and stories of two individuals impacted by the work done at HSC.

While donations continue to come in, the event has so far raised more than $700,000 to support HSC programs and services to assist people experiencing homelessness move from street to home.

“We are deeply grateful not only to those who took the time to watch the event but for those who so generously donated during this very difficult time in all of our lives,” said HSC Executive Director Amy Schwabenlender.  “The pandemic has posed unexpected challenges in our efforts to help individuals experiencing homelessness, and the good work being done by our campus partners, staff, volunteers and donors doesn’t, and won’t, stop. Too many lives are at risk.”

The event also featured a performance by the Phoenix Symphony brass quintet, the first performance by orchestra members this year following cancelation of the season because of the pandemic.  Arizona Diamondbacks’ mascot Baxter made a special appearance.
