CHILD MIND INSTITUTE RAISES RECORD-BREAKING $7 MILLION AT CHILD ADVOCACY AWARD DINNER HONORING
NANCY AND FRED POSES

Distinguished Scientist Dr. Kenneth A. Dodge of Duke University

 

 

(New York, NY – Nov. 21, 2016) The Child Mind Institute raised over $7 million and honored philanthropists Nancy and Fred Poses and Duke University professor Kenneth A. Dodge, PhD, at its seventh annual Child Advocacy Award Dinner at Cipriani 42nd Street Monday night. 

 

“Over the years, I have had the great opportunity to get to know Fred and Nancy,” said Ram Sundaram, a Child Mind Institute board member. “I have seen first-hand their extraordinary commitment to ensuring that families, especially those with children who have learning disorders, have access to the support and resources they need to thrive.”

 

Nancy and Fred Poses were honored for their deep commitment to children and families. Through the Poses Family Foundation, they spearheaded the creation of Understood.org, a comprehensive free online resource for parents of children with learning and attention issues along with 14 other founding nonprofit partners, including the Child Mind Institute. 

 

“We are honored to receive this award,” said Nancy Poses. “The Child Mind Institute ensures that families who are at sea get to experience a lighter, brighter day.”

 

The event, hosted by Al Roker and Deborah Roberts, raises critical funds that will allow the Child Mind Institute to continue transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders.

 

“We stand here tonight not just as parents, but as soldiers in the fight to recognize and invest in good mental health care for all children,” Roberts said.

 

Kenneth A. Dodge, PhD, the William McDougall Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Duke University, was presented with the 2017 Child Mind Institute Distinguished Scientist Award in honor of his work as a leading scholar in the development and prevention of conduct disorder and aggressive and violent behaviors.

 

The Child Advocacy Award Dinner also spotlighted the stories of families who have worked with the Child Mind Institute to overcome mental health and learning disorders.

 

“At the Child Mind Institute, we have the privilege and the honor to help children and families who have inspirational courage — to act through the fear and the stigma and the denial,” said Child Mind Institute Founding President Harold Koplewicz, MD. “We want every family to have access to the most effective treatment and to the information and understanding that breaks through barriers and brings hope.”

 

The evening concluded with a lively auction led by Lydia Fenet of Christie’s, which raised a record breaking amount of funds for the Child Mind Institute’s financial aid program. Notable celebrity attendees include actors Kyle Maclachlan and Brian Stokes Mitchell and Dr. Ruth Westheimer. 

 

Both the Child Advocacy Award and the Distinguished Scientist Award were designed and donated by Michael Aram.

 

Benefit chairs included: Andreas C. Dracopoulos; Elizabeth and Michael Fascitelli; Debra G. Perelman and Gideon Gil; Julie and Edward J. Minskoff; Brooke Garber Neidich and Daniel Neidich; Linnea and George Roberts; Preethi Krishna and Ram Sundaram

 

Dinner chairs included: Eig Family Foundation; Jen and Jon Harris; Elaine Thomas and Joseph Healey; Christine and Richard Mack; Anne Welsh McNulty; Valerie Mnuchin; Danyelle and Josh Resnick; Eileen and Brian Riano; Zibby Schwarzman; Abigail Pogrebin and David Shapiro.

 

Additional Benefit leadership included: Jeanne and Gerry Andlinger; Roxanne and Scott Bok; Colleen Foster and Chris Canavan; Stephanie J. and Robert Stephan Cohen; Suzanne and Matthew Donohoe; Jerome Karr; Anne Keating; Roberta Kaplan and Rachel Lavine; Mindy Schneider and Michael Lesser; Tammy and Jay Levine; Joella and John Lykouretzos; Ali Meli; Jamie and David Mitchell; Roxanne and Dean Palin; Kim and Ralph Rosenberg; Silvercup Studios; Tony Spring/Bloomingdale’s; Colleen and Ehren Stenzler; Christine and Tom Tormey.
