Annual Gala Dinner for the Municipal Art Society

On June 11, 2014, I attended the annual gala dinner for the Municipal Art Society (MAS), on whose Board of Directors I serve. The gala dinner honored two good friends of mine: Bruce Ratner, Executive Chairman, and Maryann Gilmartin, President and CEO, both of Forest City Ratner Companies.  Both shared the honor of receivng the prestigious Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis Medal Award.   The evening for a great success for MAS, raising over $1 million for the organization!

For more than 120 year, MAS has made New York City a more livable city by advocating for excellence in urban planning and design, a commitment to historic preservation and the arts, and the empowerment of local communities to affect change in their neighborhoods. From saving Grand Central Terminal and the lights of Times Square to establishing groundbreaking land-use and preservation laws that have become national models, MAS is at the forefront of our City’s economic vitality, cultural vibrancy, environmental sustainability, and social diversity.

I am indeed proud to be a part of MAS and look forward to continuing my participation on the Board of Directors.
