Three New York City businesswomen and one high school student were honored as part of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America’s 22nd annual Women of Distinction Luncheon at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Eliza Bolen, executive vice president of Oscar de la Renta, was honored as the Woman of Distinction in Fashion. Cyma Zarghami, president of Viacom’s Kids and Family Group, was honored as the Woman of Distinction in Business. Lara Englebardt Metz of Lara Metz Nutrition was honored as the Woman of Distinction in Nutrition & Health. Chloe Hubbe, a ninth grade student at Columbia Preparatory School, was honored as this year’s Rising Star.
 
“My mom has had Crohn's disease all my life- it's changed who I am and inspired me to help others living with these diseases and educate my peers about Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis,” said Chloe Hubbe. “I've volunteered and raised money for Camp Oasis, a summer camp that supports children living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. I also started a teen awareness campaign in New York City schools. I want to thank CCFA naming me this year’s Rising Star. I hope to help inspire the next generation of supporters to find a cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis once and for all.”
 
Veteran news reporter and Crohn’s disease patient Cynthia McFadden of NBC News hosted this year’s luncheon. The luncheon’s honorary chairs were Nancy Brown and Diane Miller, and the chairs were Ellen Crown, Elyse Newhouse, Michelle Swarzman, and Michele Sweetwood. This year’s luncheon also featured a fashion show debuting Oscar de la Renta's Fall 2015 collection for the first time in New York, Creative Director Peter Copping’s first collection for the fashion house.
 
The Women of Distinction Luncheon draws well-known attendees from New York society. This year, attendees included Betsy Baron, Debra Black, Emily Blavatnik, Clarissa Bronfman, Samantha Brous, Veronica Bulgari, Maureen Cogan, Betsy Cohn, Ellen and Dan Crown, Jennie DeScherer, Beth Dozoretz, Gary Fuhrman,Jane Holzer, June Jacobs, Carol Kalikow, Barbara Lane, Judy Lauder, Bonnie Englebardt Lautenberg, Dalia Leeds, Karen LeFrak, Ninah Lynne, Phyllis Mack, Sondra Mack, Linda Macklowe, Patty McEnroe, Trish McEvoy, Gillian Miniter, Marcia Mishaan, Elyse Newhouse, Pamela Pantzer, Perri Peltz, Denise Rich,Lois Robbins, Deborah Roberts, Peter Thomas and Noreen Roth, Carolyn Rowan, Dr. Gail Saltz, Mara Sandler, Josh Schulman, Dr. Howard Sobel, Dr. Robbyn Sockolow, Sara Star, Candice Stark, Bonnie Strauss, Michelle Swarzman, Vanessa Trump, Priscilla Rattazzi Whittle and Caryn Zucker.
 
Over the past 22 years, the Women of Distinction Luncheon has honored New York City women who are making a difference in the lives of those living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Over the past three years, the luncheon has raised more than $5.4 million to support research and education of these debilitating inflammatory bowel diseases.
 
“The Women of Distinction Luncheon is an incredibly important event that provides CCFA with the opportunity to publically acknowledge and thank some of the incredible women whose work profoundly touches the lives of patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis every day,” said Michele Zellers, executive director of CCFA’s Greater New York Chapter. “This year’s honorees have gone above and beyond professionally and personally to support the 1.6 million Americans living with an inflammatory bowel disease. I applaud Eliza, Cyma, Lara, and Chloe for their ongoing support of those living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, both in New York and around the country.”
 
Known collectively as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are painful, medically incurable diseases that attack the digestive system. Crohn's disease may attack anywhere along the digestive track, while ulcerative colitis inflames only the large intestine (colon). Symptoms may include abdominal pain, persistent diarrhea, rectal bleeding, fever, weight loss and fatigue, and many patients require numerous hospitalizations and surgeries.
