NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- President Trump will speak remotely Thursday night at the New York Archdiocese's 75th Annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, a largely virtual event this year with some live programming from The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture in NoHo.

The Archdiocese said an invitation has also been extended to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to speak, as well, "and we look forward to having him join us."

This year the dinner is dedicated to frontline and essential workers, the Archdiocese said.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan will appear live from The Sheen Center, as will Mary Erdoes, vice chair of the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation.

The national anthem will be performed by Nadine Sierra from St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

Then-presidential candidates Trump and Hillary Clinton attended the dinner in 2016, and roasted each other at the podium.
