The National Women’s Division of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine hosted their annual Spirit of Achievement Luncheon on April 30, at New York’s Plaza Hotel. The event benefits lifesaving medical research. This year marks the 59th anniversary of this prestigious Women’s Division flagship event, created to honor outstanding individuals leading their field in the arts, media, business, and government.

This year’s honorees included noted designer, businesswoman, and author, Liz Lange, who launched her iconic maternity line in 1997 to become the go-to brand for expectant mothers, and Anne Wojcicki, founder of 23andMe, a groundbreaking personal genomics, ancestry, and biotechnology company.

Approximately 400 of New York’s most prominent women attended the prestigious Spirit of Achievement Luncheon. Each year, this successful fundraiser generates approximately $400,000 to support ground-breaking research at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, one of the nation’s most prestigious medical schools. All proceeds are donated to advancing cutting-edge studies in breast, ovarian, uterine, and cervical cancers at Einstein’s state-of-the-art research facilities.

Guests were also treated to an exclusive fashion show courtesy of 25 PARK, the go-to boutique for discovering amazing new designers side by side with well known favorites. Emmy-Award winning television personality, New York Times best-selling author and fashion expert Jill Martin hosted. And returning by popular demand for the fifth consecutive year, MSNBC’s Willie Geist donated his time and talent as luncheon emcee.

Previous honorees include such luminaries as Wolf Blitzer, Barbara Boxer, Glenn Close, Katie Couric, Marlene Dietrich, Nora Ephron, Lena Horne, Louise Nevelson, Cynthia Nixon, Alma Powell, Eleanor Roosevelt, Diane Sawyer, Eunice Shriver, Meryl Streep, Barbara Walters, and Vera Wang.
