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.
