With the new year in full swing, it’s time to look ahead to what we can accomplish in 2012. But first, we must look back at 2011, which was a productive and creative year capped by a successful annual gala, held on October 28 at Lincoln Center’s Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse.
Honored in 2011 were three valuable partners to our organization: Fordham University, who provides us with tutors, mentors, and volunteers for our Youth Services, Senior Services, and Day Care programs; The Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation, which has provided general support to our organization for the past six years; and board member Christine Millen, who served diligently on our Board of Directors for over ten years. On hand to entertain were the Barry Harris Jazz Chorus, a longtime friend of the center’s, along with the Richard Clements Trio.

More than just a fundraiser, our annual Gala is an opportunity for our friends and supporters to see firsthand the work we accomplish everyday and the impact we have on our greater Lincoln Center community.
