Founded in 2007, the Imagine Gala has brought together over 1,600 emerging leaders and professionals and raised over $300,000 to support ADL’s work in New York State. The Centennial Gala, which will be held at one of New York City’s premier venues, Finale, is Co-Chaired by Amanda Berman and Jared Boschan. The evening will recognize Steven’s contributions to ADL and feature music by DJ Danga and a live performance from electric violinist Sarah Charness.
Steven represents the passion, commitment and dedication to ADL’s mission in New York. “I’m thrilled to be honored by an organization that worked tirelessly over the past 100 years protecting people, religious freedoms and democratic ideals,” Steven said. “ADL’s mission is, unfortunately, still very relevant to our times and I’m proud to be able to play a role in helping it continue its vital mission.”
