Greenwich resident Philip Andryc, Director of Research at Berens Capital Management, will be honored by Covenant House, the largest privately funded charity in the Americas providing loving care and vital services to homeless, abandoned, abused, trafficked, and exploited youth, at A Night of Broadway Stars on June 9.

Andryc joined the board of Covenant House International in May 2011 and has been a member of the Covenant House New York board since 2004. He currently serves as chairman of the New York board.

“Phil is an incredible champion on behalf of our homeless kids at Covenant House,” said Covenant House President Kevin Ryan. “He has a genuine concern for our kids and can often be found in our shelter helping with whatever we need. Phil has not only been incredibly generous with his resources, but also with his time. When people like Phil give so much of themselves, our kids sense that commitment and it drives our kids to put their pasts behind and do great things. We are so fortunate to have Phil as such an important member of our Covenant House family.”

Andryc is being honored alongside Covenant House Board Member Louis Rauchenberger, the Managing Director and Chief Compliance Officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co., and country music singer and songwriter Martina McBride, who will be receiving the Beacon of Hope Award.

“Once you meet the staff, the volunteers, and the young people living at Covenant House, it becomes so clear that one of the best ways to make a difference is to become involved in this work,” said Phil. “Covenant House is a caring, powerful, practical response to the needs of homeless young people. I feel privileged when the kids at Covenant House share their hopes and dreams with me and let me be a small part in making those dreams come true. Working with the young people at Covenant House is a work of the highest honor and I urge anyone who wants to make a real difference to visit Covenant House.”
