Help us honor our esteemed awardees!

We invite you to share in the excitement of our biennial awards celebration! This year, we will be honoring two very special PPGGNY members - Ronald Brown, JD and Robert Sharpe, Jr. The luncheon will be held at the 3 West Club on Thursday, October 24th at noon. Along with honoring the hard work of Ronald and Robert, the Awards Luncheon is also a time for us to enjoy the company of our fellow fundraisers and to gain new gift planning insights. This year we are pleased to be able to share that Shannon Woodward, a leader in planned giving, Sr. Philanthropic Advisor at Tulane, and speaker will be sharing her expertise as our luncheon presenter.


Don't miss your chance to help us honor the hard work of Ronald and Robert for their many accomplishments to the philanthropic industry.
Your gift will help support PPGGNY’s programming throughout the year and is a tribute to our awardees, and to the spirit of philanthropy in NYC.
