Swig is pride of the nation.

The real estate and construction division of State of Israel Bonds will honor its vice chairman Kent M. Swig at its annual luncheon on Thursday, Nov. 6.

Swig serves as owner and co-chairman of Terra Holdings, principal of Swig Burris Equities and chairman of the board of the San Francisco-based firm The Swig Company.

"Kent will be presented with the Israel Peace Medal for his leadership in the Israel Bonds program to strengthen Israel's economy," said division chairman James B. Emden, of USI Real Estate Advisors. "As campaign chairman from 1997 to 2002, he spearheaded drives that produced a record total of $175 million in bond sales from members of the real estate industry."

Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives, will deliver the keynote address at the luncheon. Israel Bonds president and CEO Joshua Matza will also speak.

Swig began his work with Israel Bonds in 1987. Before becoming the real estate division's campaign chairman, he chaired the Real Estate New Leadership Cabinet and was honored at its annual luncheon in 1995. Swig is active in a number of professional, communal, and philanthropic organizations, including the boards of the Association of Builders and Owners of New York, the Realty Foundation, Wall Street Rising, and Business Executives for National Security.

He is also president of the American Friends of the Jaffa Institute and a former board member of the corporate and congressional division of the United Nations Association of the United States of America. In 2000, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of New York presented him with its Man of the Year Award.

Swig earned a B.A. degree in Chinese history from Brown University and then attended Hastings College of Law in San Francisco, where he was selected for the Law Review. He resides in New York with his wife and two sons. The lunch will take place at The Pierre at 11:30 a.m. Admission is $180 per person. Call 212-446-5858.
