NKF's Patricia Valenti named 2006 Volunteer of the Year.

Patricia Valenti, principal at Newmark Knight Frank's Westchester/Connecticut offices, has been named the 2006 Volunteer of the Year by the March of Dimes--Westchester/Rockland Division. The Real Estate Award Breakfast, which Valenti has co-chaired since 2001, has raised over $1 million for the March of Dimes since Valenti's involvement. The award is presented annually to the individual or organization that has done the most to support the mission of the March of Dimes in the community during that year.

At the Division's awards banquet held at the University Club in Manhattan on Monday, December 11, Valenti was cited for her success in garnering support for the March of Dimes from her relationships in the real estate industry, and becoming the Westchester/Rockland Division's leading fundraiser. Committed to the March of Dimes' activities since 1998, she was appointed to the Division's Board of Directors in 2003 and co-chaired its Jail and Bail event in 2004.

Annette Trotta, executive director of the March of Dimes Westchester/ Rockland Division, commented that "Patricia has been a long time friend to the March of Dimes Westchester/ Rockland Division and her efforts over the years have contributed greatly to the success of the annual Real Estate Award Breakfast in Westchester. Her passion for the mission of saving babies from birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality is evident in the drive and dedication she exudes with each endeavor she embraces for the March of Dimes."

The March of Dimes is a national voluntary health agency whose mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Founded in 1938, it funds programs of research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies and in 2003 launched a campaign to address the increasing rate of premature birth.

"Every day, thousands of babies in the U.S. alone are born prematurely or with severe birth defects," Valenti says. "The March of Dimes has helped to reduce the likelihood of such outcomes."
