Tommy Tune Helps Raise
Funds for Cultural Projects

OMMY TUNE and the Manhattan Rhythm Kings entertained more than 650 black-tie guests at the 92nd Street Y annual Spring Gala. The event, held at its Upper East Side site, raised $1.5 million to fund scholarships, literacy programs and dance projects at the 128-year-old institution.

Tommy fine-tuned an entertainment bill that included Kathie Lee Gifford, Dominic Chianese of The Sopranos, Mary Wilson of The Supremes, singer Lesley Gore and emceed by WNBC’s Jane Hanson.

“Tonight is a love song to New York,” said Matthew Bronfman, managing director of ACI Capital and president of the Y.

“The Y means a great deal to the life of the city. Tonight we celebrate both – the 92nd Street Y and this great city.”

Among the many notables who enjoyed the program were; Patricia and James Cayne, CEO of Bear Stearns; Simona and Jerome Chazen, founding chairman of Chazen Capital Partners; Sherry and Michael Goldstein, chairman of Toys R Us Children’s Fund; William Lauder, president of Clinique Laboratories; and Cheryl and Philip Milstein, president/CEO of Emigrant Savings Bank.
