Alumni Honored, Campaign Launched at 2009 Bernard Baruch Dinner

The 20th Annual Bernard Baruch Dinner was held on Tuesday, April 28th at Cipriani’s restaurant on 42nd Street in New York. By all measures, the evening was a great success. The gala dinner honored Larry Zicklin (’57, LHD [Hon.] ’99) and David Krell (MBA ’71) as Baruch College Alumni of the Year. Both spoke eloquently about the College, its mission, its future, and its ongoing importance to them personally. “Baruch changed my life,” Larry Zicklin noted during his acceptance speech.

Along with the honorees and more than 400 alumni and friends of the College, a number of current Baruch College students were guests at the dinner, where they were recognized for their achievements.

The public phase of Baruch Means Business: Reaching New Heights of Excellence was also highlighted during the dinner. Baruch College President Kathleen Waldron and Larry Simon (’65), president of the Baruch College Fund, announced the launch of the $150 million campaign to benefit the College. The announcement was accompanied by the news that the campaign is well on the way to meeting its goal, having already raised $96 million from loyal alumni and benefactors.
