Fountain Gallery Marks 10th Anniversary At Celebration Of Life Benefit
11/15/2010 - By New York City, NY

Fountain Gallery, the premier venue in NYC representing artists with mental illness, celebrated its 10th Anniversary at the annual Celebration of Life Benefit.

It was a Celebration of Life Benefit, a collaboration of the commercial real estate industry and the New York arts community with Fountain Gallery, to benefit its member-artists. Nearly 600 guests gathered on Monday evening, November 15,
2010, at Citi Executive Conference Center in Manhattan, where many original artworks by Gallery artists were sold from among the 100 pieces on display.

The 2010 recipients of the Esther Montanez Leadership Award were: Richard J. Daly,
CEO of Broadridge Financial Solutions, for many years a significant employer of Fountain House members through the Fountain House Employment program; and Dario Gristina, CEO of Genergy, whose generous friendship and dedication have been instrumental in the flourishing of Fountain Gallery and the Celebration of Life Benefit he co-founded. The Esther Montanez Leadership Award is presented in honor of the memory of the founding director of Fountain Gallery.

Co-Chairs of this year’s Celebration of Life were: Peter L. DiCapua, Matt Duthie, Rick Froio, Carmel W. Fromson, Carl T. Hagberg, Leslie Harwood, John McGinley, Richard D. Parsons, Bob Schifellite, Jerry Schumm, and Andrew Stenzler. Co-Founders: Dario Gristina and Jerry Schumm. Ms. Harwood and Messrs. DiCapua, McGinley, and Stenzler are past recipients of the Esther Montanez Leadership Award.
