Gala Reception for Donors Held at NYU's Institute for the Study of the Ancient World

NYUCD paid tribute to alumni and friends who made gifts of $1,000 or more to the College over the past year at a gala reception last June held at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World. The Institute is an NYU center for advanced scholarly research and graduate education, intended to cultivate comparative and connective investigations of the ancient world from the western Mediterranean to China.

More than 100 guests enjoyed a reception and dinner in the Institute's facility, a stunning former private mansion on East 84th Street in Manhattan. A highlight of the evening was recognition of Dr. Benjamin Godder, Clinical Associate Professor of Cariology & Comprehensive Care, who had recruited 25 new $1,000 donors since last year's event.

"Ben Godder's commitment to increasing philanthropy at NYUCD is based on his conviction that excellence requires financial resources to make dreams reality," said Dean Bertolami. "We are deeply grateful to him for his efforts and applaud his success; and we warmly welcome the new donors he has recruited. They have added a special dimension of enthusiasm to this wonderful evening."
