Annual Smith College Club of NYC Benefit
A cherished annual event, sponsored by the Smith College Club of NYC, is our way of giving back to the college and features a keynote speaker.
This distinguished Smith College Alum talks about their career, and journey through life after Smith.
The Club has been honored to present keynote speakers such as Shelley Lazarus, Charlotte Ford, Florence Fabricant and Farah Pandith.
The Benefit raises money for a scholarship fund for New York City area eligible students. One hundred present of the proceeds of the Benefit go to the scholarship fund as the Club underwrites the cost.
The money is paid directly to a scholarship endowment fund managed by the college, which continues to grow to meet todays costs of a college education thanks to the generosity of Smith Alumnae who gather at this event to celebrate their connection to the college and each other as alumnae.
What a wonderful way for the Smith community of New York City to give back to the college as well as to support current students.
