The NYU Langone Medical Center held its annual Violet Ball on Tuesday, May 5, 2009, and raised $4.5 million in unrestricted funds.  The gala at Cipriani 42nd Street was chaired by Robert I. Grossman, M.D., Dean and CEO of the Medical Center, and honored long-time supporters Susan and Martin Lipton.  Dr. Grossman also announced that a residence hall that will house 300 faculty, nurses, and physicians will be renamed in honor of the Liptons.

Martin Lipton, a founding partner of the law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, is a trustee of NYU Langone Medical Center, chairman of the Board of New York University, and a trustee of NYU Law School.  Together with Susan, the Liptons have been immensely supportive of the Medical Center, and their leadership and experience are particularly valuable to an institution of such size and breadth.

Special guests in attendance included:  Fiona Druckenmiller; Lori Fink and Larry Fink, Lynda Gardner and Michael Gardner; Gideon Gil; Lori Hall and George Hall; Ruth Lapidus and Sidney Lapidus; Laurence Leeds, Jr.; Sandy Meryer and Ed Meyer; Brooke Neidich and Daniel Neidich; Debra Perelman; Linda Gosden Robinson and James Robinson; Elizabeth Rohatyn and Felix Rohaytn; Lyanne Saperstein and Michael Saperstein; Klara and Larry Silverstein; Norma and Gordon Smith; Billie Tisch; Bonnie and Daniel Tisch; Merryl and Jim Tisch; Barbara and John Vogelstein; and Anthony Welters.
