Met Council’s Annual Builder’s Luncheon Raises

One Million Dollars

Honoree Bruce Ratner Draws Support for Met Council’s

Affordable Housing Work



August 14, 2008 (New York, NY) – In one of its most successful fundraisers ever, Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty (Met Council) netted more than one million dollars yesterday afternoon, during its annual Builder’s Luncheon honoring Bruce Ratner, Chairman and CEO of Forest City Ratner Companies.

The nearly 500 guests spanned both the real estate and political spectrum.  Jerry Stiller warmed the audience with his humor, while City Council Speaker Christine Quinn presented Mr. Ratner and the keynote speaker, Speaker of the Assembly Sheldon Silver, with awards in recognition of their efforts on behalf of New York City.   

Drawing on its exceptional reputation as one of the largest and most trusted developers of supportive housing in New York City, Met Council’s Builder’s Luncheon rallies the top real estate leaders each year, usually raising about half a million dollars for the agency.  This year’s event was the most successful so far, with one million dollars raised

The money will support Met Council’s extensive supportive housing projects, which shelter the low-income elderly, formerly homeless and mentally ill throughout New York City.  Current projects in development include the Seaview Nurses’ Residence in Staten Island, with 104 units, and Council Towers V in the Bronx with 70 units, both for low-income seniors.
