NEW YORK CITY – Loreen Arbus, Founder & Chair of Women Who Care and Edward R. Matthews, CEO of United Cerebral Palsy of New York City, today announced the honorees for the 12th Annual Women Who Care Luncheon.

The event, to be held Monday, May 6th, at Cipriani 42nd Street, benefits United Cerebral Palsy of New York City and celebrates the extraordinary accomplishments of women as professionals, caregivers and philanthropists. Susan Lucci, the Emmy Award winning actress for her portrayal of the iconic Erica Kane on “All My Children”, and now starring in the highly anticipated new series “Devious Maids” created by Marc Cherry and premiering Sunday June 23 on Lifetime, will host.

“This year’s honorees represent a diverse cross section of the community. Their commitment to giving their time and energy back to society, both in their personal lives and professional fields, is a wonderful testament to their character. It is a great privilege to be able to celebrate their extraordinary accomplishments at the Women Who Care Luncheon, which continues its tradition of honoring female role models who inspire women around the world to achieve their full potential,” said Loreen Arbus, Founder & Chair of Women Who Care.

Sharon Greenberger, the Senior Vice President of Facilities Development and Engineering at New York Presbyterian Hospital, is responsible for developing and maintaining high quality medical facilities for patients, their families and the community. With nearly two million patient visits a year, Ms. Greenberger is tasked with overseeing existing facilities and driving the hospital’s long term infrastructure planning program.

For over 30 years, Cyndi Lauper has dazzled fans all over the world. A multi-talented artist and one of music’s most beloved icons, she has racked up global record sales of over 50 million (with 14 Grammy nominations) and has won countless awards including a Grammy, an Emmy and numerous honors for her tireless activism. An unwavering advocate for equality for all, Cyndi details her journey, including her co-founding of the True Colors Fund in 2008, in her recent New York Times Best Selling autobiography, Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir. Most recently, she wrote the music and lyrics for the Broadway adaptation of Kinky Boots, in which an entire community is revitalized through the power of acceptance.

As the founder and CEO of Patriarch Partners, Lynn Tilton is tirelessly committed to rebuilding America, one company at a time and one job at a time. Over the last decade, she has provided operational and strategic expertise to more than 150 companies – saving 250,000 jobs that would otherwise have been lost through liquidations. It is her belief that America’s most valuable asset is human capital, and that job creation is the essential element to sustainable economic prosperity. With over 75 companies comprising the Patriarch portfolio, Ms. Tilton is not only one of the country’s most successful businesswomen, she also champions the cause of wounded servicemen and women returning from the Middle East.

Maysoon Zayid is a multi-talented actor, comedian and philanthropist and is the founder of the New York Arab-American Comedy Festival. She is also the co-founder of Maysoon’s Kids, which provides educational scholarships for Palestinian children with disabilities where she spends 3 months each year.
