NEW YORK: October 10, 2023— The Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) Foundation Board of Directors will host the 2023 Gala, “Invest in a Future: Empowering Student Success” on Wednesday, October 25 2023 at Tribeca 360, 10 Desbrosses Street, New York.

“Proceeds from the Gala provide scholarships to hundreds of hard-working students who demonstrate their courage and commitment to education in the face of many obstacles,” said Karen Wilson-Stevenson, Interim Vice President for Institutional Advancement. “Students who are awarded scholarships are nearly four times more likely to graduate within three years, than comparable non-recipients. The generous contributions we receive from donors and community members support BMCCs mission of advancing socioeconomic mobility, equity, and inclusion for all students.”

The 2023 Gala Honoree is Rob Fauber, President & CEO Moody’s Corporation. Fauber was selected as this year’s honoree for his leadership in finance, as well as for his and Moody’s long-term commitment to BMCC and its students.

“We are pleased to honor Rob Fauber at this year’s Gala,” said Tony Portannese, Chairman of the BMCC Foundation Board. “This year’s gala is a special celebration as we come together in-person in support of student scholarships. The past two years have been especially challenging for BMCC students, due to the pandemic, and we appreciate Moody’s sustained commitment to our students and programs.”

As a corporate leader and driver of positive change for his company and the markets and communities it serves, Mr. Fauber is passionate about advancing the academic success and personal growth of students. He is a strong believer in the value of BMCC, and in continuation of Moody’s long history of partnership with the college, has championed internship and mentoring opportunities for BMCC students at Moody’s. Over the past decade, through scholarships, networking, interviewing and professional development events, Moody’s has helped students build the critical skills necessary to succeed in a corporate environment.

BMCC Foundation Board members and co-Chairs of the Gala Committee, Jessica Gatti, and Elizabeth Butson shared, “The BMCC Gala is a wonderful opportunity for guests to engage and reconnect. We invite our alumni, donors, and members of the community to join our cause in supporting the success of BMCC students as they earn a college degree and build a bright and sustainable future for themselves and their families.”
