We would like to extend our genuine appreciation to our Gala Lead Chairmen, Mercedes T. Bass and Hope and Robert F. Smith, and the Gala Chairmen Committee, Len and Emily Blavatnik, Blavatnik Family Foundation, Bruce and Suzie Kovner, Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis, Annette de la Renta, Sana H. Sabbagh, Beatrice Santo Domingo, Margaret and Ian Smith, and Joan and Sanford I. Weill, all of whose continued support of the Hall truly made this evening possible. We give very special thanks to our Corporate Chairman for the event, Dennis M. Nally, and to PwC, Opening Night Gala Lead Sponsor for the 13th consecutive season.
