Tuesday night was our annual Holiday Party, at the Friars Club, and it was attended by about 100 people despite the rain (how come it always rains when we have our party?).
Highlights were the announcement of the 2 well deserving 2017 Networkers of the Year, Susan Zinder and Carly Meyer (pictured above) who continued our winning red heads tradition.
Jason Greenberg was the recipient of our Red Bandanna Award for exhibiting selfless sacrifice in the memory of Welles Remy Crowther who died a hero on 9/11. Thank you father Jefferson for providing the trophy for our highest award.
The recipients of the Gotham Foundation Season of Giving $5000 grants were: Legal Outreach, Savvy Ladies, ACDS and the Sant Bani School.
Special thanks to our sponsors who made the party possible:

We started the year celebrating our 20th Anniversary and we ended a very good year on this high note. Thank you all and seasons greetings!
There is something deeply gratifying about being in a community of friends and acquaintances who care to improve the lot of others by spreading angel dust...whether by inviting one to our family table or contributing to our fellow man. Hats off to Fred and to all who share the spirit and walk the talk.
