We are proud to support Joe Plumeri, CEO of Willis Group Holdings and Grand Marshal of this year’s Columbus Day Parade as well as the various business honorees at this year’s Columbus Day Gala at the Waldorf Astoria. This is the Columbus Citizens Foundation’s signature event and their largest fundraiser of the year. Iron Cove Partners and The Whitmore Group are glad to be a part of the 67th Annual Celebration.
By way of background, the Columbus Citizens Foundation is a non-profit organization in New York City committed to fostering an appreciation of Italian-American heritage and achievement. The Foundation, through a broad range of philanthropic and cultural activities, provides opportunities for advancement to deserving Italian-American students through various scholarship and grant programs. The Foundation organizes New York City’s annual Columbus Celebration and Columbus Day Parade, which has celebrated Italian-American heritage on New York’s Fifth Avenue since 1929.
