The Financial Industries Dinner is a prestigious event that gathers some of the biggest players in New York’s financial world for a time of networking and philanthropy. The evening will feature a cocktail reception, dinner and music by the Gerard Carelli Orchestra.

Supporters and guests of the event have long supported the research and treatment of respiratory, cardiac, immune and related diseases at National Jewish Health. Based in Denver, the institution partnered with Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in 2015, creating the Mount Sinai - National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute. This brought the National Jewish Health patient-centered, multidisciplinary model of care to New York City.

Dinner Chair Daniel Cott and Treasurer Dorothy Killeen, both of Wells Fargo Capital Finance, are leading the 2017 dinner. Honorary chair is Albert Spada of Santander Bank, who was recognized at this dinner in 2016. You can view the entire dinner committee list at
