Jean Velarde Hope 4 Hearts Day

Harboring Hearts closed out the month of March with a Hope 4 Hearts Day honoring Jean Velarde and his family.


Jean and his family were picked up from their house and taken to the Highline where they were met by the Harboring Hearts team for a photo shoot to remember this wonderful day. They then enjoyed a fantastic dinner at Nick & Stef’s Steakhouse near Madison Square Garden.


To end the day they watched the New York Nets and the Miami Heat battle it out during an NBA game at Madison Square Garden. We spoke to Jean’s wife, Jackie, and she exclaimed,”We had so much fun. My son loved it, Thank you so much.” It was so great to hear that we could plan a great day for this wonderful family.
