The Street Vendor Project at the Urban Justice Center presents its annual community gala, bringing together vendors & their allies from across the city. At the fundraiser, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer will honor beloved family-run Lower East Side institution Yonah Schimmel Knish Bakery, which began in 1910, with the first-ever Step Ladder award. The new award recognizes a successful company that used street vending as a launch pad towards greater achievement.
