NCLD's 33rd Annual Benefit Dinner held on April 28, 2010 at the Tribeca Rooftop in New York City.
This year's benefit raised $1.8 million and will allow NCLD to continue to provide our nation's more than 15 million children, adolescents and adults with LD the opportunity to succeed in school, work and life.
This year we were honored to present awards to two very deserving individuals —
Mr. Charles R Walgreen III, former CEO of the nation's leading drugstore chain and one of the largest, proactive employers of people with disabilities, and Mr. James Carville, a renowned American political consultant, who has been a strong advocate for others with learning disabilities. We were also privileged to have Mayor Michael Bloomberg, George Stephanopolous and Paula Zahn contribute their time and talents to the success of the evening.
Page Ive and Mackenzie Meyer received the Anne Ford and Allegra Ford Scholarships and spoke eloquently about their accomplishments and the vital importance of the services that we provide.
A big "thanks" to all who made this benefit a success!
