The 53rd Annual New York Leatherneck Celebratory Scholarship Ball is the original and premier event supporting the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation. The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is the nation’s oldest and largest provider of need-based scholarships to military children. Founded in 1962 by Gen Martin F. Rockmore USMC (Ret.), the Scholarship Foundation has provided more than 33,000 scholarships valued at nearly $90,000,000 since that time. Particular attention is paid to children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen who were killed or wounded in combat or have demonstrated financial need.
This years event will honor Howard W. Lutnick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Cantor Fitzgerald, L.P. and BGC Partners, Inc. with the Semper Fidelis Award. We will also honor Phebe N. Novakovic, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, General Dynamics with the Leatherneck Award. Show your support for this worthy cause and join us for an unforgettable and patriotic evening.
The success of the New York Leatherneck Celebratory Ball would not be possible without the support and dedication of committee members, who volunteer their time to the mission of the Scholarship Foundation.
