Women of Distinction Luncheon Raised More than $1.8M | April 29, 2019

This year we recognized 26 years of the Women of Distinction Luncheon and the significant impact that women continue to have in shaping the world we live in.  Since its inception, the luncheon has raised over $29 million to advance the Foundation’s mission. This event would not have been possible if not for the vision and determination of our luncheon founders, Nancy Brown and Sue Ellen Schneider who with the support of Diane Miller, Rita Tansky and Sandra Wasserman established this event to honor patients and caregivers. Each year, we are privileged to honor true individuals of distinction. 

Honorees included:

  • Nicole Pozzi, ESQ., Woman of Distinction in Law
  • Tanya Zuckerbrot, MS, RD, Woman of Distinction in Health & Wellness
  • Barry Salky, MD, FACS
  • Brooke Stimmel, Rising Star
