NEW YORK —
A veritable Who’s Who of the New York real estate and construction industries will gather December 8 for the 50th consecutive year to raise funds in support of National Jewish Health, the #1 respiratory hospital in the nation as ranked by U.S. News & World Report
. The 50th annual Winter’s Eve Real Estate and Construction Industries Dinner Dance at the Grand Hyatt New York will honor Lloyd Goldman, president of BLDG Management Co., Inc.
“We are extraordinarily grateful for the committed and enduring support of the New York real estate and construction community,” said Michael Salem, MD, president and CEO of National Jewish Health. “Year after year these generous donors step up to raise millions of dollars that are crucial to our ability to provide cutting edge care and research for people from around the world for respiratory and related diseases.”
On October 18, prominent leaders of the New York real estate and construction industries kicked off fundraising efforts for the event at the new home of Klara and Larry Silverstein. Michael Boxer, Peter Cohen, Wendy and Stephen Siegel, as well as the Silversteins, were just a few of contributors who raised more than $1 million in advance of the event. Wendy Siegel is the Executive Chair of the dinner dance. Larry Silverstein is the Honorary Chair. Michael Boxer, Peter Cohen and Stephen Siegel are Dinner Chairs.
At the dinner dance, Mr. Goldman will receive the 2018 National Jewish Health Humanitarian Award. Funds raised will go to The Victoria and Lloyd Goldman Fund for Pediatric Allergy and Respiratory Care and Research.
“National Jewish Health invests heavily in researching cures to some of the most devastating diseases children face,” said Dr. Salem. “Our pediatric physicians and researchers collaborate to bring the latest clinical trials and most effective treatments to patients. This comprehensive approach makes us the best place for children who are living with diseases such as severe asthma and other lung diseases, eczema and food allergies.”
