The Hunter College “New Yorkers Forever” Gala will honor three exceptional New Yorkers who greatly contribute to the quality of life in our great city: Dominic Chianese, best known for his masterful role as “Uncle Junior” on The Sopranos, who volunteers his time producing and performing for local senior citizen centers and community groups; Victor Gotbaum, who for more than 20 years led District 37, growing it into the largest municipal union in the country and improving the standard of living for hundreds of thousands of local workers; and Muriel “Mickie” Siebert, the first woman to win a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, a remarkable pioneer who also has designed and underwritten a financial management skills course for high school students that is now a standard part of the NYC school curriculum.
Hunter College President Jennifer J. Raab will host the “New Yorkers Forever” Gala on Thursday, June 14 at The St. Regis, 2 East 55th Street. A cocktail reception will begin at 7:00pm and dinner will be served at 8:00pm.

For the past three decades, Hunter College’s Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging and Longevity has played a leading role in making New York a better place to live as one grows older. Funds raised from the “New Yorkers Forever” celebration will be used to advance education and training programs, support applied research initiatives, and the development of a forum for constructive dialogue among policy makers on the diverse issues pertinent to an aging society, including health care, social service, housing, transportation, and employment.
