HBS Alumni Club of CT Spring Benefit @ the Bruce Museum

Earlier in the week, I attended the Harvard Business School Alumni Club of Connecticut Spring Benefit at the The Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut. It was a long drive from my part of the state, but it was well worth it. Eric Hammerling, the Executive Director of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association, was awarded the 2009 scholarship from the club’s Community Partners Scholarship Fund. It is a fabulous honor, and I was pumped because I nominated him. Eric will attend the HBS Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management course in Boston in June. It will be great learning for Eric and he is bound to bring back some great information for the CFPA. 

At the Bruce, we heard from the 2008 winner, Jessica Sager, of All Our Kin, a New Haven 501(c)3 that is making a difference in the lives of many New Haven area mothers and children. Also, Robert and Leah Rukeyser were honored for their longstanding commitment to not-for-profit work. Robert is the Vice Chairman of Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. I did not know the Rukeyser’s, but I learned that both he and Leah have done a ton of work for a long list of organizations in Connecticut and New York. 

The evening was closed out with a short set from a jazz trio, led by Bennie Wallace.


Watch Bennie play at a previous gig. The music was excellent.

I never post about food. However, this is the second time this week that I’m posting about food. These #vegan dishes at Empress by @theprivegroup were awesome. #instavegan #singapore Everything worked out fine for @trailrunningmom After a little stress, they had her race packet and bib number at the @metasprintseries venue and she kept it upright on the bike! 🚴🏽 She was very pleased with 2nd place 🏆 in her age group at her first road #Duathlon.🏃🏻There are no mountains ⛰ and there isn’t much singletrack in #singapore but it’s still a great city for endurance sports. It looked like there were more than 1,500 athletes at the 3K/18K/3K race with LOTS of kids too. Great vibe! #triathlonsg #teamhorstsports 🇺🇸 Our kids may recognize this great Shoppes @marinabaysands feature from six years ago. I had forgotten how cool it was. #singapore #marinabaysands First time on a road bike for @trailrunningmom In advance of her first ever road duathlon @metasprintseries I taught her some tips & tricks including the do's/don'ts of shifting strategy, cornering, blocking (not), drafting (not), passing, flying mount/dismount, etc. It was fun! Even though she was on a "rental" too, I couldn't keep up on my "steed." #triathlonsg #singapore #teamhorstsports @thecheryltan #cheryltan #singapore #singapore Name those tunes. 11-year-old Feng E is making a name for himself in Asia and beyond. #guitar #fenge #singapore 🎸 @trailrunningmom led #yoga at #ypoedge #singapore 

@ypoglobal #yogini Tremendous #vegan dinner @metasingapore Without a heads up, Chef Sun and his team whipped up an amazing seven course + three “snacks” meal for @trailrunningmom and me, that was worthy of their @michelinguide star. We sat at the counter and watched every step in the process. Chef said that with advanced notice (of our diet), he “would have done better.” We appreciated his perfectionism, but it was just fine. #metarestaurant #instavegan #michelinguide #singapore
