The Violet Ball

At Its Annual Fundraiser, NYU Langone Garners More Than $9.7 Million—a Record

NYU Langone Medical Center held its annual Violet Ball at Cipriani 42nd Street on May 4, raising a record $9.7-plus million. Some 850 guests gathered to honor NYU Langone trustee Fiona Druckenmiller and her husband, Stanley Druckenmiller, for their tremendous generosity, particularly their $100 million gift to create NYU Langone's Neuroscience Institute. Speakers included the institute's recently appointed director, Richard Tsien, DPhil; Mayor Michael Bloomberg; NYU Langone Board Chair Kenneth G. Langone; NYU President John Sexton; and Dean and CEO Robert I. Grossman, MD. Stanley and Fiona Druckenmiller paid tribute to Langone's vigorous outreach to donors, which generated more philanthropy for the event than ever before.
