Cardinal Egan visits Highbridge, thanks CEO for new scholarship fund

Cardinal Edward Egan, the Archbishop of New York, visited Sacred Heart School in Highbridge this afternoon, joined by Blackstone CEO Stephen Schwarzman.

Cardinal Egan was on hand to thank Schwarzman for creating a new endowment fund that will pay for 100 inner-city-children per year to attend Catholic Schools , and for Schwarzman's donation of $5 million to that fund.

Schwarzman was visiting a student at Sacred Heart whom he sponsors through the Be A Students' Friend Program, where individuals help pay for the education of students in need.

A year ago, Cardinal Egan was a guest at Schwarzman's 60th Birthday Party.


  1. Interesting. I didn't even know he was in Highbridge today!

  2. I am pleased that Steve's good work is recognized rather than receiving criticism from people who do not know what a good person he is.
