New York, NY - On April 29, alumnae and friends of Barnard College gathered at Guastavino's, one of New York City's architectural landmarks, for its annual Scholarship Dinner and Auction. This year honored recently retired professor of political science Dennis Dalton, Vice Chair of the Barnard College Board of Trustees Jolyne Caruso-FitzGerald '81, and Barnard Trustee Emerita and Chair Emerita Helene L. Kaplan '53. ABC News correspondent Deborah Roberts served as Mistress of Ceremonies at the event, titled Pass the Torch, and all proceeds benefit the College's financial aid program.

More than 500 guests attended, including multimedia entrepreneur and television personality Martha Stewart'63,  brought  five of her employees and fellow Barnard alums. Other notable guests included  Newsweek columnist and bestselling author Anna Quindlen '74; founding editor of CosmoGIRL! and former editor-in-chief of Seventeen Atoosa Rubenstein '93; philanthropists Cheryl Milstein '82 and Philip Milstein; and Lisa Cohen '81 and James Cohen, president and CEO of Hudson Media.

"The Scholarship Dinner brings together Barnard's alumnae, faculty, parents, and friends for an evening that celebrates and supports the College's mission of educating exceptional young women," said Barnard President Debora Spar, who assumed leadership of the College in July 2008. "With the difficult economic situation facing families of all income levels today, the financial aid program is more important than ever. We are grateful that our alumnae and friends have responded with such remarkable generosity." Barnard's financial aid department saw a noticeable increase in requests for additional assistance during the 2008-2009 academic year.

The Scholarship Dinner featured live and silent auctions, as well as an online auction to run through May 7. Some of the most highly anticipated auction items include the chance to play in a doubles match with tennis greats Andre Agassi and Justin Gimelstob at The Kennedy Funding Invitational, and the opportunity to name a character in Robert Ludlum's Bourne Identity book series. Other exciting items are dinner with Barnard parents Chevy, the legendary comedian, and Jayni Chase, lunch and a tour of the WB Studios with Donald DeLine, producer of I Love You, Man and The Italian Job, and the opportunity to meet Martha Stewart at a taping of The Martha Stewart Show.

Honorees were: Helene L. Kaplan '53, Chair Emerita and Trustee Emerita, and Jolyne Caruso-FitzGerald '81, Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees, will both receive the Frederick A.P. Barnard Award, one of the College's highest honors. Honoree Dennis Dalton, retired political science professor and renowned scholar of nonviolent political theory, will receive the Margaret Mead Award, named for the famed cultural anthropologist and Class of 1923 graduate. 

Throughout her years of service as a member of the Barnard Board of Trustees from 1973 until 1999 and beyond, Kaplan has shown remarkable dedication and creativity in her commitment to mentoring women.  In 1990, Kaplan and her husband, Mark, established Barnard's first endowed chair in the physical and natural sciences. In 1993, Kaplan's friends and family established the Helene L. Kaplan '53 Scholarship Fund in her honor. Additionally, she co-chaired the search committee that appointed President Spar last year.

Elected to the Board of Trustees in 2000, Caruso-FitzGerald has worked tirelessly as a member of numerous committees and has been instrumental in all stages of planning for the Nexus, Barnard's new state-of-the-art campus center that will open at the end of 2009. Motivated by her beliefs in the power of a Barnard education and a community dedicated to the advancement of women, Caruso-FitzGerald has used her fine-tuned leadership skills to establish and grow Barnard's Annual Scholarship Dinner and Auction, giving generously to financial aid herself, and serving as co-chair of the event since 2005.

Honoree Dennis Dalton taught political science for nearly forty years at Barnard College and retired at the end of December 2008. Professor Dalton's legacy lives among the Barnard women for whom he became a mentor, friend, and role model through his popular classes in political science and participation in on-campus events featuring topics of nonviolence. An expert in South-Asian political thought, Professor Dalton's research, teaching, and publications have received much recognition, including a Fulbright Scholarship to support his work in Nepal. At Barnard, Professor Dalton received rave course evaluations from students and many teaching and research awards.


        About Barnard College

The idea was bold for its time. Founded in 1889, Barnard was the only college in New York City, and one of the few in the nation, where women could receive the same rigorous and challenging education available to men.  Today, Barnard is among the strongest liberal arts colleges in the country, and the most sought-after women's college.
