Annual Winter's Eve Ball Raisers Over $ 1.4 Million For National Jewish Medical and Research Center.
The leadership of this annual event reflected the broad support that National Jewish has enjoyed for decades from the real estate and construction industries. Lee S. Saltzman and Larry A. Silverstein served as diner chairmen, assited by co-chairman James D. Kuhn; Arthur J. Mirante, II; and Stephen B. Siegel. The honorary chairman were J. Warren Gorrell, Jr.; Alan L. Gosule; Benjamin F. Needell; and Eugene A. Pinover. Margaret A. Herman served as treasurer, while Peter Marchetto was the journal chairman. Wendy Siegel supervised the elaborate party arrangements, including the take-home favors. The grand prize, a London vacation for two, was provided by Blackstone Real Estate Advisors and Colony Capital, with first class airfare courtesy of American Airlines.
The theme for the gala evening was the centennial year of the non-profit, non-sectarian National Jewish, and the black tie crowd partook of food and entertainment with a decade-by-decade flavor. Proceeds from the dinner helped set up the Richard B. and Bette A. Saltzman Fund for Food and Other Allergies, which will be used for allergy research at National Jewish in the leading immunology laboratories in the country. For two years in a row, National Jewish has been ranked the number one hospital for respiratory care in America by U.S. News & World Report.
