CIVITAS Thirtieth Annual Benefit 2011 was held on Thursday, March 3, 2011 at the Americas Society,
680 Park Avenue in New York City. During the festive cocktail reception, the August Heckscher Award for Community Service was presented to two institutions that have made significant contributions to the quality of life on the Upper East Side and in East Harlem.

Tony Bechara and El Museo del Barrio were the first recipients of the award. As the longtime chair, Tony has overseen the development of El Museo into a standout cultural institution in East Harlem and in New York City. 
El Museo del Barrio strikes a balance in cultural programming for diverse ages in its surrounding community and avant-garde art installations.

The second award went to Paul Buckhurst, Frank Fish and Georges Jacquemart and BFJ Planning. The land-use planning and transportation consulting firm is well-respected for its work in New York City and around the world. CIVITAS has worked with principals of BFJ on studies and recommendations related to streetscape improvements to the 96th and 125th Street corridors and to the Second Avenue subway station entrances and mechanical structures.

Previous August Heckscher honorees Bruce Fowle, Founding Principal of FXFOWLE and Susan Henshaw Jones, Director of The Museum of the City of New York presented the 2011 awards.

Honorable Pete and Ainslie Grannis were the eventís honorary chairs.
