MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle ‘Anchors’ Our Annual Gala

MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle to 'Anchor' Our Annual Gala!

We were thrilled that MSNBC anchor and NBC correspondent Stephanie Ruhle served as emcee at this fall's "Together We Rise" Gala on October 26th. Guests got to see another side of this hard-hitting business reporter: her compassion and advocacy for girls and social justice.

Her work includes sitting on the board of trustees of Girls Inc. NYC, which honored her as one of its Women of the Year in 2016. She also currently sits on the board and advises for “React To Film,” which uses produces documentaries to highlight important issues and encourage youth to become engaged social citizens. A former investment banker, Stephanie founded the Corporate Investment Bank Women’s Network and co-chaired Women on Wall Street to promote women’s professional achievement.

This year’s gala is chaired by Susan and Rodman Benedict, and will honor Frances R. Olivieri and Bobby and Gina Hotaling. We hope you will join us at The Pierre on Thursday, October 26th at 6:30 p.m. for a festive evening. You’ll be able to meet Stephanie and help Leake & Watts support 12,000 of our most vulnerable children, adults, and families. Click here for more information.
