Hon. Michael R. Bloomberg


The Hundred Year Association Hosting
Presentation Gala Fundraiser
at Capitale
 November 19. 2008


The Hundred Year Association of New York has selected Michael R. Bloomberg as the recipient of its 75th Richard A. Cook Gold Medal Award, presented annually to remarkable New York City leaders “in recognition of outstanding contributions to the city.”  Bloomberg is the fifth mayor to receive the award, which was also won by three-term mayors Fiorello H. LaGuardia and Robert F. Wagner, as well as William O’Dwyer and Rudolph W. Giuliani.

Mayor Bloomberg’s philanthropic generosity, strong sense of civic responsibility, and considerable accomplishments in public service were cited in selecting him for the honor.  Additionally, the Association applauded Bloomberg’s anti-poverty campaign and PlaNYC — his ground-breaking environmental initiative for fostering a sustainable New York.  The mayor’s contributions to affordable housing, public health, and education initiatives were also noted.

The Richard A. Cook Gold Medal is being presented during a gala fundraiser on November 19 at Capitale.  The evening begins with a cocktail reception, followed by dinner and dancing. Donations will support the non-profit and its public service awards and college scholarship programs.

Co-chairing the event are Robert R. Douglass, the 1999 Gold Medal honoree (Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy), Robert P. Kelly (The Bank of New York Mellon), and Terry Lundgren (Macy’s).  Dinner Committee members include Kenneth L. Davis, MD (Mount Sinai Medical Center), Michele Gerber Klein (Bertha and Isaac Liberman Foundation), Diana Taylor (Wolfensohn & Company) and Charles J. Urstadt, the 2002 Gold Medal honoree (Urstadt Biddle Properties).

“The Hundred Year Association has led the way in public-private partnerships in our City, and on behalf of everyone in and out of government who is trying to think outside the box to make the City a better place I am honored to accept this award," said Mayor Bloomberg.

“We are pleased that Mayor Bloomberg is accepting the Richard A. Cook Gold Medal,” said Clinton Blume III, president of The Hundred Year Association. “We look forward to toasting him while also bringing attention to the Association’s mission of preserving the heritage of public and private organizations that have been in existence for a century or more.”

For more information about attending the event, please contact the Association at 212.922.0791 or visit


Established in 1927, The Hundred Year Association of New York is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve the history and promote the heritage of public and private organizations that have been in existence for a century or more. 

Our membership is comprised of the metropolitan area’s most enduring professional, educational, religious and charitable establishments.   We support activities that maintain the history of these organizations, as well as those that positively impact the city.   The Hundred Year Association works to safeguard the rich, diverse history of New York City while also benefiting the city and its citizens today.  The Association’s services and activities are community-minded and educational in nature.

In addition to assisting member organizations in celebrating milestones with special events and activities providing a public purpose, the Association is best known for granting financial awards to New York City municipal employees who help improve the city through their outstanding achievements and public service.  Additionally, we sponsor college scholarships for sons and daughters of civil employees who demonstrate academic excellence, school and community service, and leadership.
