Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York (CCC) hosted CCC Celebrates at the Museum of Modern Art on Tuesday, April 5, 2011 from 6-9 pm. The elegant evening benefited CCC, New York City’s premier multi-issue, non-profit and non-partisan child advocacy organization, founded 67 years ago by Eleanor Roosevelt. Since that time, CCC has convened, informed and mobilized New Yorkers to make our city a better place for children. Through fact based research and citizen activism, CCC’s mission is to support policy and legislation in order to ensure every child’s birthright- that each child in New York City is healthy, housed, educated and safe.

 

Festivities began at 6 pm with a VIP reception and private viewing of the 2011 Museum of Modern Art exhibition German Expressionism: The Graphic Impulse.  From 7-9 pm, guests gathered in The Marron Atrium for a cocktail reception, viewing of the contemporary galleries and a silent auction featuring works by Robert Rauschenberg, Robert Motherwell and Ed Ruscha. James Rosenquist was this year’s Honorary Artist.  Honorary Art Chairs were Agnes Gund, Alexandra Herzan and Joanne Stern.

 

CCC honored Ricki Tigert Helfer and Michael S. Helfer at this year’s gala.  Ms. Helfer, a member of CCC’s Board of Directors since 2005, has been instrumental in establishing a sustainable corporate funding strategy at CCC and co-chaired, with her husband, CCC’s Works on Paper Art Benefit from 2006-2009, helping to raise over $2.5 million.

 

Ms. Helfer is an independent consultant in financial institution regulation with Financial Regulation and Reform International.  She serves as a member of the Social Performance Advisory Committee of the U. S. Grameen Foundation.  She is a former Chairman and CEO of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and was the first woman to head a federal bank regulatory agency.  Mr. Helfer, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of Citigroup, has been a national leader in legal services for poor families and children for many years.  He was a founding director of the Lawyers for Children America, President of the Legal Aid Society of Washington, DC as well as a long time board member, and now member of the Advisory Board of the Legal Aid Society of NYC. 

 

CCC saluted Lead Sponsors TF Cornerstone, a preeminent real estate firm with extensive residential, commercial and retail property holdings from New York to Washington, DC, for their vital support of CCC’s work to achieve important outcomes for children and their families.  Honorary Chairs were TF Cornerstone Co-Founders Frederick Elghanayan and K. Thomas Elghanayan. 

 

Frederick Elghanayan, President and co-founder of TF Cornerstone, leads the construction division of the company and is responsible for overseeing the construction and renovation of the more than 8 million sq. ft. of commercial and residential properties in TFC's portfolio. An industry veteran for over 40 years, Fred dedicates himself to ensuring that every TF Cornerstone project exceeds the industry standard for design, construction, environmental consideration, quality and innovation.

 

As Chairman and co-founder of TF Cornerstone, Tom Elghanayan is actively involved in supervising acquisitions, planning, sales, residential marketing and management. During his 40-year career in the real estate industry, Tom has earned a reputation as a forward-thinker who has set the standard for building style and quality, while paving the way into New York's burgeoning neighborhoods.

 

Leaders from the prestigious law and real estate firms who were major supporters of this event are: Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP; Paul, Weiss, Rifkind; Rose Associates; Wharton & Garrison LLP; Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP; Linklaters LLP; Clifford Chance LLP; Shearman & Sterling LLP; Sullivan & Cromwell LLP; Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz; WilmerHale; and Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP.  Donors also included key members of the financial world from BNY Mellon Wealth Management; JP Morgan Private Bank; The Whitmore Group, T & H Brokers, Citigroup, Promontory Financial Group, Imowitz Koenig; and The Compass Group at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney.
