Project Lazarus celebrated the annual Guardian Angel Award Gala on Wednesday, April 18, at the Pavilion of the Two Sisters in City Park. Project Lazarus is a housing and care facility for people living with AIDS who cannot live independently or don’t have the means to live with family or friends. Richard W. Thompson was the emcee and there was a special guest performance by Anaïs St. John.

The gala and patron party honored Sister Anthony Barczykowski D.C., Mr. Henry Lambert and Mr. Carey Bond as three outstanding “angels” who have helped Project Lazarus prosper, survive and celebrate successes. All three of the “angels” are critical to the existence of Project Lazarus. Project Lazarus was founded out of compassion and service to all people. The primary purpose of Project Lazarus is to provide continuity of care in a homelike environment.

The highest goal of Project Lazarus is to enhance the quality of life for those it serves. Project Lazarus doesn’t discriminate on the basis of age, race, religion, gender, economic status, sexual orientation or handicap.
