2023 Henry Hyde Award from the American Catholic Press

The Do It Stevie’s Way 219 foundation is honored to receive the 2023 Henry Hyde Award from the American Catholic Press. This recognition is a testament to the enduring impact of Stevie’s legacy, which resonates profoundly within our communities, thanks to the unwavering commitment and vision of Karen and Mark. Without the support of dedicated family and friends this would not be possible. Please help us continue our journey by always Doing it Stevie’s Way!

The event was truly special, not only embracing the Thanksgiving spirit but also paid a heartfelt tribute to Stevie’s enduring legacy.
