About the Financial Industries Dinner
The financial industries have long been at the forefront in providing funds to support National Jewish Health. Industry leaders in New York organized this event in 1977 to raise critical funds for the world-class medical center. The first honoree was banker and philanthropist Lou Moskowitz. Since then, the event has grown beyond New York to include and honor some of the most notable financial industry professionals across the nation.
The annual event is one of the most prestigious and well-attended gatherings for the financial industries. Many generous individuals have consistently supported National Jewish Health through this event, providing $17 million dollars for lifesaving treatment and research.
