She will be recognized for her long-standing support of the universities arts and cultural programs that provide a vibrant incubator for emerging and established writers and filmmakers located on Long Island’s East End and in Manhattan. Since its inception in 2000, the Stony Brook Foundation Stars of Stony Brook Gala has raised nearly $50 million to support student scholarships and a featured academic program of excellence.
