US Holocaust Memorial Museum New York Tribute Dinner
05/04/2010 - By New York, NY

US Holocaust Memorial Museum New York Tribute Dinner

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum honored asset manager and philanthropist Howard L. Ganek on the occasion of his 80th birthday and in recognition of his long-time leadership and support of the Museum.

More than 600 people attended the event, which took place on May 4, 2010, at The Pierre Hotel. Many distinguished members of New York society attended the dinner, including fashion designers Vera Wang, Judith Ripka and Dennis Basso.

Former U.S. Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen was the featured speaker at the tribute dinner, which raised $2.3 million in support of the Museum. Mr. Ganek’s son and daughter-in-law, David & Danielle Ganek, donated $500,000 to the USHMM in honor of his father’s birthday. This was the first major gala event to be hosted in New York by the Museum, which is located on the Mall in Washington, D.C., and which has been educating the public about the Holocaust and inspiring people to confront hatred and prevent genocide since it opened its doors in 1993.
