New York, NY: The 240th Annual St. George’s Society English Ball was held at the New York Public Library on
Fifth Ave. @ 42nd Street on April 22nd 2010.  

Confirmed guests: The Lord Mayor of Westminster, |Sheikh Abdula Thuraya, designer Mary McFadden,
David Tufts,
filmmaker Ken Johnson,
Baroness Gabrielle von Langendorff, Sir Harold Evans,
(Sir Harold toasted President Obama,) TV personality & producer Gordon Elliott

The black-tie gala honored Mark C. Pigott, OBE,
presenting him with the Society's Medal of Honor
Mr. Pigott was introduced by the actor (famous for his “Lloyd Braun” character on “Seinfeld”) Matt McCoy.

In honor of the evening's theme - "London in New York",
the Library  exhibited 10 literary treasures for one-night
only, including 3, rarely-seen, 1st-edition Shakespeare
folios and an autographed letter of Queen Elizabeth I.  

The Starlight Orchestra provided the entertainment and
dancing music.  

The St. George's Society has been in
operation since 1770. The English Ball is a charitable fundraiser that enables the St. George's Society to
continue its Beneficiary program and Scholarship
programs. The Beneficiary program provides monthly stipends to the elderly, handicapped, or people in crisis of British or Commonwealth origins in the New York area.
The Scholarship program provides vital scholarships to students of British and Commonwealth heritage who are enrolled at Lehman College, part of CUNY in the Bronx.

*“Mr. Pigott iwas recognized for his critical support of the Society's education program,” says John Shannon, Executive Director and Almoner of the St. George’s Society. “Supporters like him allow us
 to continue furthering the scholarship of students and supporting British and Commonwealth residents in the New York City area.
We are also very excited to announce an anonymous $25,000 matching grant has been guaranteed during a special appeal for scholarship fund donations during the dinner.”
