Last October, more than 100 friends and colleagues of Dr. Jonathan
and Maxine Ferencz paid tribute to the couple's generosity and commitment
to postgraduate prosthodontics education at NYU by participating
in a gala celebration at the legendary Le Cirque Restaurant in Manhattan.
Two years ago, Dr. and Mrs. Ferencz donated $1 million to establish
the Dr. Jonathan and Maxine Ferencz Advanced Education Program in
Prosthodontics. Former CBS news anchor Dan Rather, a patient of
Dr. Ferencz's, was the guest speaker.
In his tribute to the Ferenczs, Dean Alfano said, "There can be
no more fitting name than the Dr. Jonathan and Maxine Ferencz Advanced
Education Program in Prosthodontics. Dr. Ferencz has always given
generously of both his time and his financial support to his alma
mater. This wonderful, latest philanthropic act by Jonathan and
Maxine ensures that our postgraduate program in prosthodontics will
become the model of a 21st century specialty training program."
