of New York presented

CCC Celebrates at the Museum of Modern Art

Cocktail Reception, Silent Auction and
 Open Gallery Evening April 24, 2012 6-9pm

 

Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York (CCC) hosted CCC Celebrates at the Museum of Modern Art on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 from 6-9 pm. The elegant evening benefitted CCC, New York City’s premier multi-issue, non-profit and non-partisan child advocacy organization, founded 68 years ago by Eleanor Roosevelt. Since that time, CCC has convened, informed and mobilized New Yorkers to make our city a better place for children. Through fact based research and citizen activism, CCC’s mission is to support policy, legislation, and public investments that ensure every child’s birthright to be healthy, housed, educated and safe.

Festivities began at 6 pm with a VIP reception and private viewing of the 2012 Museum of Modern Art exhibition Cindy Sherman. From 7- 9 pm, 800 guests gathered for a cocktail reception, viewing of Contemporary Galleries 1980 - Now and a silent auction featuring works by Hans Hofmann, Man Ray, and Jennifer Bartlett, this year’s Honorary Artist.

Joining Honorary Art Chair Agnes Gund were Special Honorees Clare and Vartan Gregorian, and Jessica and Todd Aaron, Susan and Matt Blank, Sharon & Jon Corzine, Joan Davidson and Neil Barsky, Diana and Fred Elghanayan, Madeline and Tom Elghanayan, Nancy & Henry Elghanayan, Ricki Tigert Helfer and Michael S. Helfer, Chris and Morton Hyman, Katherine and Richard Kahan, Carol Lawson and Daniel Arick, Lee and Fritz Link, Maryann and Robert Marston, James Metzger, Cheryl and Michael Minikes, Rae-Alexander-Minter, Morris Offit, Masha Pelosky, Ronald Richter, Jane  and Morley Safer, Linda and Richard Schaps, Beth and Bob Sheehan, Stuart Shorenstein and Janice Weinman, Stephen Stamas, Joan Steinberg, Lynn Tudor, Ann Unterberg, Christine Wasserstein, Susan Wasserstein  and George Sard.

CCC  honored Clare and Vartan Gregorian at this year’s gala. The Gregorians have been heavily involved, personally and professionally, in the philanthropic and academic worlds throughout their lives. Vartan Gregorian has served in many influential roles during his distinguished career as an educator, author and institutional leader. Now, as the twelfth president of Carnegie Corporation of New York, founded by Andrew Carnegie in 1911, Vartan Gregorian has ushered one of America’s most influential grant making foundations to its 100th year of fulfilling its mission “of promoting the advancement and diffusion of knowledge and understanding.” He has directed the organization's efforts to develop new ideas to further peace and international security, support higher education and libraries in Africa, strengthen American democracy and pioneer U.S. educational reforms, focusing on redesigning urban high schools and improving teacher education. Prior to his current position, which he assumed in June 1997, he served for nine years as the sixteenth president of Brown University. Before going to Brown, Gregorian served as the president of The New York Public Library, a globally renowned institution with a network of four research libraries and eighty-three circulating libraries.

Clare Russell Gregorian, a graduate of Stanford University, where the Gregorians met, has been active in adult literacy, health, and public library improvement efforts in a number of different cities. She first served on a Planned Parenthood Board in Austin, Texas, in the early 70’s.  In the 90’s she was chair of development and vice president of the Board of Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island, and received the organization’s Gilman Angier award.  She inaugurated the successful effort that established the first Rhode Island Public Radio station, and was also vice-president of the Board of the Providence Public Library. She is a past President of Literacy Partners, Inc. of New York City, and has served on the Board of Planned Parenthood of New York City and the New York Public Library’s Branch Library Council.  She presently serves as a member of the Boards of the Guttmacher Institute, the New 42nd Street, the Children of Armenia Fund, and the Visiting Nurse Service of New York.
