Municipal Art Society Of New York To Honor Dr. Judith Rodin, President, And David Rockefeller, Jr., Board Chair, The Rockefeller Foundation, At Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Medal Gala

NEW YORK, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Vin Cipolla, president of The Municipal Art Society of New York (MAS), today announced that the 2013 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Medal Gala will honor Dr. Judith Rodin, President, and David Rockefeller, Jr., Board Chair, The Rockefeller Foundation, on the occasion of the 100 th anniversary of its founding, for its outstanding contributions to New York City, and in recognition of its steadfast support of global and local innovations that address environmental, health, economic and urban challenges.

The annual fundraising event will take place on June 13 th in Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal during its own centennial year.  It will bring together hundreds of civic-minded and charitable New Yorkers to honor The Foundation and to raise funds to support MAS in its mission to advocate for urban planning, preservation and design that makes New York more livable and resilient.

The Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Medal, MAS's highest honor, is presented annually to an individual or institution whose work or deeds have made an outstanding contribution to New York City. The medal, launched in 1950, was renamed in 1994 to commemorate Mrs. Onassis's efforts to champion and preserve New York's great architectural treasures.

Cipolla said, "For 100 years, The Rockefeller Foundation has served as one of the world's most influential philanthropic organizations.  From funding the development of pioneering medical advances to leading the international dialogue on urbanization and recognizing progressive civil-society leaders who are affecting positive, lasting change in cities around the world, The Rockefeller Foundation has served as a catalytic force for good for a century. Judith Rodin and David Rockefeller, Jr. are true visionaries.  We are humbled to honor them with MAS's highest award.

"It is fitting," Cipolla continued, "that we celebrate and honor The Foundation's centennial year in Grand Central Terminal – one of the world's greatest public spaces – also celebrating its 100th anniversary." Cipolla also noted that this revered New York Landmark was saved from destruction as a direct result of the combined efforts of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, MAS and others.
