Healing, Hope & Heroes
Hosted at the beautiful Gotham Hall in New York City, the evening featured actress and author Mariel Hemingway as keynote speaker and winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award. NEDA also awarded Aerie the Corporate Honoree Award and Redbook the NEDA Inspires Seal of Approval.
Special thanks to our Profile in Leadership honoree Neal Garelik, our event chairs, Allison Kreiger Walsh and Shelly Steinwurtzel, and our corporate chairs Ric Clark, Glenn Shannon, and Frank Bisignano for helping NEDA to raise over a million dollars for the first time at this year’s annual event.
In memory and honor of his daughter, Karyn Tendler, David Tendler graciously started the Karyn Tendler NEDA Conference Fund — a fund that helps individuals cover the cost of attendance of the annual NEDA Conference. Since 2010, the fund has awarded close to $30,000 in scholarships.
