The Annual Scholarship Benefit is Marymount Manhattan College’s largest fundraising event of the year. This spring we’ll be honoring Paul Polizzotto, entrepreneur, environmentalist, and philanthropist. Paul is the founder and president of CBS EcoMedia, which harnesses the power of advertising and channels it into tangible social change.

We are thrilled to be honoring Paul Polizzotto—learn more about him and his work here.

Each year, this event raises need-based scholarship funds to help students afford the Marymount Manhattan College education they desire. Last year’s benefit raised $1.6 million for student scholarships — photos from the event are here. As in years past, this elegant evening will include a sit-down dinner with esteemed guests and performances by MMC students. Check out a list of previous honorees.
