Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City raised over $2 million for its programs at their 31st Annual Sidewalks of New York Gala held on April 26, 2010. The event was held at the Waldorf Astoria’s Grand Ballroom. 

Honorees included four incredible role models who have overcome personal and professionals obstacles to obtain significant success: The Allan Luks Public Service Award was presented to Richard J. Franchella of RBC Wealth Management; Mark Standish, President and Co-Chief Executive of RBC Capital Markets received BigsNYC Corporate Award; Deborah Roberts, ABC News and 20/20 Correspondent was presented with the BigsNYC Communications Award; and the BigsNYC Sports Award went to Baltimore Ravens Offensive Tackle, Michael Oher, whose remarkable story is the subject of the Oscar-nominated film The Blind Side.

Each award was presented to the honoree by a child and his/her mentor. Over the past two months, the matches had been writing and rehearsing their introductory remarks -- making for moving, heartfelt presentations sparkling with individualized wit and personality. Each of their stories noted the important role that their social workers played in ensuring the long-term success of their mentoring relationship.

CNN Anchor & Special Correspondent, Soledad O’Brien was Mistress of Ceremonies. Gerald L. Hassell, President of the Bank of New York Mellon was the Dinner Chairman.
