The 22nd Annual Bernard Baruch Dinner at Gotham Hall

This year's annual Bernard Baruch Dinner, held at Manhattan's Gotham Hall on April 27, 2011, was a successful evening honoring distinguished faculty member Terrence F. Martell, along with prominent Baruch College alumnus Howard I. Smith ('65). The event raised $1 million for only the fourth time in its history. "While private philanthropy cannot —and, indeed, should not — become a substitute for public funding and tuition, we depend increasingly on our alumni and friends to help maintain the academic excellence of Baruch and help the College continue to advance," said Baruch College President Mitchel Wallerstein of this accomplishment.
