Strategic Communications Advisor Michael Freitag Named Honorary Chair Of Eleventh Annual Michael Lynch Memorial Foundation Dinner





NEW YORK, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Michael Lynch Memorial Foundation, a scholarship program that has provided $2.9 million in college scholarships to 117 children of firefighters and victims of the September 11 attacks and other fires and disasters, today announced that Michael Freitag, a Partner at the strategic communications firm Joele Frank, Wilkinson, Brimmer, Katcher, has been named Honorary Chair of the Foundation's eleventh annual dinner. The event is scheduled to be held on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at Pier 60 at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan.

The Michael Lynch Memorial Foundation began in response to a terrible tragedy – the loss of Michael Lynch, a son, brother, fiance, uncle and New York City firefighter who sacrificed his own life on September 11 in an effort to save others. Facing the ultimate loss, the Lynch family saw an opportunity to help finance the education of young people as a living tribute to the human spirit and the family's collective resolve to respond to adversity with courage, strength, compassion and hope. The goal of the Foundation is to provide the means to help change the world, one person at a time, by helping the students of today become tomorrow's stewards of peace and freedom.

"It is a special privilege to be asked to serve as Honorary Chair of the annual dinner, and I greatly appreciate this opportunity to help contribute to the Foundation's continued success," Mr. Freitag said. "At a time when families and communities throughout the region are recovering from tragedies that have impacted so many lives, the Michael Lynch Memorial Foundation shines brightly as a symbol of hope and optimism."

For more than 22 years, Mr. Freitag has provided strategic counsel and support to companies, individuals and institutions facing significant communications challenges. He has been deeply involved in a wide range of matters impacting the business community, from the restructuring of the airline and automotive industries to numerous high-profile mergers and acquisitions, proxy contests, regulatory settlements and management changes.
