Marymount Manhattan College—a small liberal arts college on NYC’s Upper East Side—is teaming up with the CBS Corporation to honor Paul Polizzotto at their Annual Scholarship Benefit on May 5, 2016.

Paul is the President and Founder of CBS EcoMedia, which harnesses the power of advertising and channels it into tangible social change. In Spring 2016, he was named one of America’s 25 most influential philanthropy and social innovation experts by Philanthropy Media. Paul has received numerous additional awards and honors for his work, including the Starlight Children’s Foundation’s “General H. Norman Schwarzkopf Leadership Award,” the EPA’s “Environmental Hero” recognition, the Santa Monica Baykeeper’s and the Waterkeeper Alliance’s “Keeper Award,” and the Coastal Living Leadership Award. He was also named a Public-Private Visionary by Vanity Fair magazine. Paul and his team at EcoMedia earned the U.S. Conference of Mayors Award for Excellence in Public Private Partnerships and were recognized with back-to-back Edison Awards for Social Innovation and Social Impact.

Each year, this event raises need-based scholarship funds to help students afford the Marymount Manhattan College (MMC) education they desire. The benefit will take place at the Mandarin Oriental in NYC, beginning with a cocktail reception and followed by an elegant dinner, award presentation, and special performances by MMC students, celebrity alumni and special friends including Jenna Ushkowitz, Chris Pinnella, and Vivian Reed.

The event is presented by MMC President Kerry Walk, Ph.D., CBS Chairman, President, and CEO Leslie Moonves, and CBS Senior Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer & CHRO Tony Ambrosio. The evening will be hosted by a special guest from the CBS family.

Tickets, tables, sponsorships and journal ads are on sale now at www.mmm.edu/benefit. Join us for a night to remember as we help change the world!
