The gala serves as an opportunity to pause and remember John Reisenbach’s life and to honor his memory by making New York a better and safer place to live.

The 2015 Reisenbach Distinguished Citizenship Awards will be presented to Geri Wang, President of Sales at ABC Television Network, John Nitti, Chief Investment Officer Worldwide at ZenithOptimedia Group, and Gary Vaynerchuk, the internationally-noted entrepreneur, investor, author, public speaker, internet personality, and CEO of VaynerMedia.

At 6:30 PM, attendees will then be allowed to explore more of the breathtakingly beautiful space at the Rubin Museum and will marvel at all of its vibrant and striking contemporary and historical East-Asian art during the cocktail reception. Following the cocktail reception will be the awards presentation, where guests will be greeted by the gala’s Masters of Ceremonies, Rosanna Scotto, co-anchor of Good Day New York.

The Foundation honors the memory of advertising executive John A. Reisenbach, who was the victim of a random and senseless murder in Greenwich Village in 1990. In the wake of this tragedy, John’s friends and colleagues in the advertising and media industries created the Foundation to promote safety, security, and a high quality of life throughout New York. The Foundation remains rooted in the advertising and media communities, and with the generous support of these industries our reach has grown to encompass partnerships with donors and grantees across the city.
