2008 Tribute Dinner

It was a night to remember. A sold-out event honoring long-time friend of St. Mary’s, Nick Billotti, President of Turner International. A record-breaking Tribute Dinner that raised over $780,000 for vital programs and services for 4,000 of New York’s most critically ill and injured children. An evening to celebrate all that was accomplished for the kids of St. Mary’s this year.

To sum it up, the 2008 St. Mary’s Tribute Dinner at Gotham Hall on November 17 was a tremendous success. Board Chairs Jeff Frerichs and Stephen Brent Wells presented awards to Ark Latt, Honorary Event Chair, Nadine Sirena, Dinner Chair, and Honoree Nick Billotti, all of Turner International. Highlights of the evening included a performance by the UN Choir, the launch of a new mentoring program, and the unveiling of the short film, Magic, that showcases magical moments at St. Mary’s.
