Wendy Williams knows how to make a big entrance.
The celebrity talk show host surprised the families of Harmony House, New Community’s transitional housing facility for the homeless, by making an appearance at a holiday dinner hosted by the Hunter Foundation.
A Daytime Emmy-nominated host of “The Wendy Williams Show” who is widely known by her maiden name, Williams is married to Kevin Hunter and the couple’s namesake charity organization threw a holiday party for NCC families. The festivities included dinner served by the Hunter family—Williams, Hunter and their son, Lil Kev — music spun by deejay Antoine Qua and a visit from Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, who greeted each child and gave out presents.
When Williams appeared before the families seated for dinner at St. Joseph Plaza, everyone cheered.
“I am personally grateful to Wendy and her family for taking time to celebrate the holidays with our families,” said Richard Rohrman, CEO of New Community. “Both our families and staff at Harmony House were delighted to meet the Hunters and enjoyed the festivities,” he said.
The holiday dinner took place on the evening of Tuesday, December 1, 2015, which is known as “Giving Tuesday.” Many non-profit charities launch end-of-year giving campaigns on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving weekend to fundraise for their organizations. Many thanks to the Hunter Foundation for its generosity!
