For the fifth year, we are gathering Great Guys and Gals for Bringing Hope Home’s Great Guys Dinner in Baltimore. This inspiring event raises money for local Families currently undergoing cancer treatment at the following hospitals: LifeBridge Health (Sinai Hospital, Northwest Hospital, Herman & Walter Samuelson Children’s Hospital at Sinai), Medstar Cancer Network, and Ascension Saint Agnes Hospital. From the support of corporate sponsors, we are able to make a difference for these Families through the Light of Hope Grant Program. Your sponsorship dollars not only stay in Baltimore, but also provides a unique opportunity for increased visibility among our donors, supporters and the Families we help!
GATHERING THE GREAT GUYS AND GALS
At the age of 32, Paul’s wife Nicole was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Even though this was an extremely difficult time, the Isenberg’s were astonished by the love and support from family, friends, and strangers alike. They felt so blessed to have such great people in their lives. Nicole had an idea for Paul to get all of the “Great Guys” together for a benefit dinner to reconnect with his longtime friends, thank them for their support, and help other families less fortunate. This is where the concept of the “Great Guys Dinner” was born. The first Great Guys Dinner took place in 2001, gathered 100 guys and raised $13,000. Sadly, Nicole’s fight ended in 2003 at the young age of 39, but her legacy lives on through the special work we do in her honor. Since our inception in 2008, we have supported over 6,740 local Families with over $7.7 million dollars in assistance.

In May 2016, he was chosen by the University of Maryland to be the keynote speaker at their Communications School graduation.
Steele serves on the boards of the Irvine Nature Center, Sutton Scholars, Sacred Heart School Advancement Fund and the Stevenson University Brown School of Business and Leadership.
